Trash Collection Guidelines (PDF)

Please have trash and recyclables out to the curb by 7:00 a.m.

TRASH: On each regularly scheduled collection day ( Wednesday and Saturday ), Best Trash will collect residential refuse located at the curbside in the provided roll-out carts. Please place the carts on the curb facing forward as shown in the picture below. Residents are restricted to one Best Trash cart for refuse and are encouraged to confine refuse to the cart, however additional refuse may be placed in containers (between 30- 50 gallons), or bags (not weighing over 40 pounds) and placed next to the Best Trash provided trash cart.

CONTAINERS: Residents will continue to supply their own containers. Containers should be no smaller than 30 gallons and no larger than 50 gallons and weigh less than 40 pounds when full.

HEAVY TRASH: Trees, shrubs, brush trimmings and fencing must be no larger than 4 inches in diameter, no more than 4 feet long, 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 40 pounds), will 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.

EXCLUDED ITEMS: dirt, mulch, 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 results 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).

RECYCLEABLE ITEMS: Recycle is collected once per week on Wednesday in the Best Trash red bin. 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. If items exceed container capacity, please place them adjacent to the bin well marked as recyclable materials. Cardboard is recyclable, please break down all boxes flat, and place them next to the recycle bin for collection.

RECYCLE BINS: Best Trash will provide each current residence with one recycling bin. Best Trash will replace any bins that are defective or otherwise become unusable due to normal wear and tear. Lost or stolen bins can be replaced for $15.00 each by calling Best Trash.

HOLIDAY SCHEDULE: If your regular collection day falls on a holiday (New Year’s Day, July 4th and Christmas Day) the collection will be made on the next regularly scheduled collection day.
