What common obstructions/issues will cause me to be skipped by the trash/recycling truck?

Frontier Waste Solutions trucks utilize an extending arm to grab your carts and empty them. That means that your carts need to be clear of any obstructions such as parked cars and mailboxes. Make sure that each of your carts has a few feet of clearance on each side and are clear of any obstructions in front of them so the truck has no issues grabbing them. Also, be sure that your carts are facing the correct direction. Backwards carts cannot be picked up and will cause you to be skipped.
