The Garbage Man 's Pickup Guidelines


All regular pick ups must follow these guidelines:

Trash must be out on the curb before 6 am.

Trash must be bagged and contained.

Limit the weekly amount of garbage to either 2 (96gal) cans or 4 (30-50gal) cans.

Please bag or bundle any/all yard waste and leave outside of cans.

4* bags (32 gal kitchen bags) of yard waste are allowed in addition to the regular cans.

Make sure that branches are cut to 3-4 ft in length and bundled. **Bundles must be manageable and left beside the can. NOT LOOSE in a can.

A Good Rule of Thumb:

If you have any item(s) that you would not NORMALLY have on a weekly basis, give us a call or shoot us an email!

*Excess yard materials can be picked up for an additional fee if scheduled in advance.

**On a weekly basis you can have 4 bags OR 4 bundles of yard materials


There are some things that CAN be picked up BUT ONLY IF they are scheduled 1 to 2 weeks in advance. These items COST EXTRA.

Items such as:

  • Wood/Particle Board/2x4s/Fencing
  • Siding/Paneling
  • Tile
  • Drywall/Sheetrock
  • Carpet/Carpet Pad
  • Linoleum/Vinyl
  • Particle Board
  • Furniture - any kind (broken down or intact)

  • Windows - any kind (broken down or intact)
