Please have trash and recyclables out to the curb by 7:00 a.m. each collection day. Garbage collection days: Monday and Thursday. Recycle collection: once per week on Monday or Thursday (depending on the section you live in).

Trees, shrubs, brush trimmings and fencing must be bundled in lengths no greater than 4 feet with no branch diameter larger than 4 inches and bundles weighing more than 40 pounds. The bundling is required to allow quick pickup, and size limitations are required to avoid damaging the equipment in the compaction process.

All residential waste materials except tree and yard waste must be either in containers, bags or bundles not exceeding 40 pounds.

Heavy/bulky items such as appliances, furniture, carpet (up to 1 room, rolled and tied, four feet wide and less than fifty pounds) will be picked up either collection day.

By Federal Law, refrigerators and freezers or any other items containing Freon must be drained of Freon and have an accompanying bill to validate such service was performed.

Items excluded from normal collection are dirt, rocks, bricks, concrete, tires, batteries, motor oil, cooking oil, waste generated by a private contractor or any materials or items deemed hazardous materials.

Best Trash will leave a tag explaining the reason for non-collected item(s). An enhanced feature of the new provider will allow for collection of items excluded by the contract if notified in advance, Best Trash will meet with a resident prior to collection day to determine a price to haul the non-contract items. If a resident does not notify Best Trash of such a special pick-up before its scheduled day, Best Trash will leave a notice for the resident to contact Best Trash during normal office hours before the next scheduled pick up day.

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 not visible and results in spillage, that causes a stain, Best Trash is not responsible for the clean up.

Best Trash takes great pride in our recycling program and efforts. 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 use the provided recycle bins for recyclable materials, NOT as an extra trash container.

Best Trash will collect paper (including cardboard), plastics (1-7), aluminum and tin cans, and glass (all colors) that are placed within the provided recycling bin. If items exceed container capacity, please place them adjacent to bin well marked as recyclable materials. List of recyclables.

If you find items left in your bin, it means they are not recyclable. Please dispose of these items in your trash container for the next scheduled pick up. If you have more than will fit in the provided red bin, you are welcome to use a container of your choice as long as it is labeled “RECYCLE” and placed at the curb for collection on your scheduled collection day.

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.
