How We Collect Trash

Debris should be placed at the curb, a safe distance from all utilities but not blocking the road for safe travel.  We operate machinery that loads debris in trucks for the collection of trash. 

The use of this type of equipment reduces injuries to our staff from having to lift and carry heavy materials. The different trucks collect different materials for proper disposal. Yard debris is collected for composting, while other debris is disposed of differently. Please remember to separate your trash piles.
