Winter Garbage Pickup Tips

Extreme winter weather can make

garbage pickup a challenge. 

Here are some tips to make winter pickups

go as smoothly as possible.

  • Make sure your garbage toter isn’t stuck in the snow.

When shoveling your drive, simply take a few extra minutes to clear out a spot where you can place your cans. If you have a snow removal service, ask them to clear a place to put your cans. Most companies will do this at no extra charge.

  • Make sure the garbage toters aren't blocked by any vehicles.

  • Routes change all the time so be sure to have your garbage out early in the morning or even the night before.

  • Make sure your garbage is within two feet of the curb and five feet away from a solid structure like a mailbox.

  • Many of your carts are picked up with an automated truck. 

Carts must be facing the right way in order for them to be dumped properly. Please have the wheels of the cart facing away from the street.

  • When we have extreme weather it affects both our employees and our trucks.

When those days come, be patient with us as we are doing our very best to give you the best possible service.
