  • Carts may be placed in the apron of your driveway.
  • Carts may be placed next to your driveway in the gutter area where it is not a travel lane (this is recommended in areas with heavy parking).
  • Carts may be placed anywhere along the area between the sidewalk and the curb.
  • Carts may be placed partially on the sidewalk where the sidewalk is adjacent to the curb, or where there is a narrow parkway as long as there is at least 3-feet of sidewalk clear for passage (accessibility standard).
  • Where there is no curb and gutter, carts may be placed anywhere behind the pavement edge, in the shoulder area.
  • Carts may be placed behind the sidewalk, no more than 8 feet from the face of the curb, in No Parking Zones.
  • Carts MUST be at least 4-feet from obstacles, including other carts.
  • Carts MAY NOT be placed on top of snow piles.
  • The area between the cart and the street MUST be clear of obstacles.
  • See diagrams showing cart placement options.
