TRASH: On each regularly scheduled collection day, Best Trash will collect residential refuse located at the curbside in resident provided trash cans between 20-50 gal in size or you may place trash to the curb in trash bags for collection (not weighing over 40 pounds). Items excluded from normal collection are dirt, rocks, bricks, tile, concrete, tires, batteries, motor oil, cooking oil, waste generated by a private contractor, or any materials or items deemed hazardous materials. Please do not dispose of gasoline, motor oil, paints, cooking oil, or any other liquid items in a container that are not visible to Best Trash personnel. If such items result in spillage that causes a stain, Best Trash is not responsible for the cleanup. Best Trash will leave a tag explaining the reason for any non-collected item(s).
YARD & BULK WASTE: COLLECTED BOTH COLLECTION DAYS EACH WEEK
Trees, shrubs, brush trimmings and fencing must be no larger than 3 inches in diameter, no more than 4 feet long, and tied in bundles not exceeding 40 pounds. The tied bundles is required to allow quick pick up and size limitations are required to avoid damaging the equipment in the compacting process. Items such as appliances, furniture, mattresses, carpet (up to 1 room of carpet, cut less than 4 feet wide, tied in bundles not exceeding 50 pounds), will also be picked up on both garbage collection days. By Federal Law, refrigerators, freezers, and any other items containing Freon must be drained of Freon and have an accompanying bill to validate such service was performed.
RECYCLABLE ITEMS: PAPER (including cardboard), PLASTICS (1-7), ALUMINUM and TIN cans and GLASS (all colors)
Best Trash takes great pride in our recycle program. Ensuring the best recycle program for our customers takes time and effort on both sides. Please remove caps, liquids and food products from inside the containers. Please only use the provided recycle cart for recyclable materials. Please place the recycle cart on the curb facing forward as shown in the picture below. The green recycle cart is NOT an extra trash container and will NOT be emptied as such. If items exceed container capacity, please place them adjacent to the cart well marked as recyclable materials. Cardboard is recyclable, please break down all boxes flat, and place them next to the recycle cart for collection.
CART CARE & MAINTENANCE: Best Trash will provide each residence with ONE recycling cart. Best Trash will replace any Best Trash provided recycle carts that are defective or otherwise become unusable due to normal wear and tear. Lost or stolen carts can be replaced for $75.00 + tax each by calling Best Trash.
HOLIDAY SCHEDULE: If your regular trash or recycle collection day falls on a holiday (New Years, Memorial, Independence, Labor, Thanksgiving or Christmas Day) the collection will be made on the next regularly scheduled collection day.
