Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Holiday Schedule

Will my trash be picked up during inclement weather?

We are fortunate to live in a wonderful area that experiences the four seasons. At times, in our judgement, weather will make it unsafe to operate. If this occurs, we will attempt to service the following day, weather permitting. At times, it may be necessary to delay pick-up to your next scheduled service. If this occurs, we ask that you bag up your extra trash and we will pick-up on your next service. Up to three one-week delays in service due to weather is factored into our service price. Please check our website for current service status.  To learn more visit Inclement Weather Information.

Where should I place my residential garbage and recycling containers?

Please place them at the curb with the arrows pointing toward the street (in the alley for alley pickups). Place the containers at least 3 feet apart.
