GARBAGE
What is trash?  Thin plastics (bags and saran wrap), cat litter, ceramics, broken glass, and other non-recyclables.  See accepted items here.

Extra Trash?  Please place loose items in bags or boxes next to your cart on your regular service day.  Additional charges may apply.

Cart Sizes & Placement

Our carts have wheels and attached lids, making your job (and ours!) a lot easier.  Need to latch your lids due to weather?

  • 32 gallon cart, 75 lbs weight limit
  • 32 gallon can, 60 lbs weight limit
  • 90 gallon cart, 150 lbs weight limit

Carts must be placed at the curb or roadside by 7:00 AM on your regular collection day unless you have signed up for side yard service.  Loose garbage should be bagged and secured – especially sawdust, ash, kitty litter, and Styrofoam peanuts.  Place carts within 4 feet of the curb or roadside, and 4 feet from obstacles, such as cars, trees, basketball hoops and mailboxes.


Side Yard Service

If you are unable to set your carts at the curb for service, we may be able do it for you depending on your property type. This service is popular for second homes and vacation properties.  If you subscribe to side yard service, please be sure that your cart is not behind any locked gates and visible from the road. This will help ensure consistent service every time.  Contact us to request Side Yard Service.
