Residential Trash Collection:
All Residential curbside services start at 6:00 AM, so please make sure that all items for collection are placed curbside by 6:00 AM to avoid missing any of the collection vehicles.
Waste Pro provides residential collection and disposal service for all household trash, garbage and recycle generated from residential customers which has been properly prepared and contained in the correct refuse container provided under the Automated Cart Program.
Extra garbage that does not fit in the brown garbage can may be placed out for collection in plastic bags set next to the can. Each bag can not weigh more that fifty (50) pounds and be stacked neatly at the curb.
Remember to keep a three (3) foot clearance between and around each can for collection and that the wheels and handle are to face the house. Please remember to also keep at least a five (5) foot clearance from mailboxes, trees, parked cars, etc.
Residential Recycling Collection:
Extra recycle that does not fit in the green recycle can may be placed out for collection in an empty cardboard box with the words “EXTRA RECYCLE” written large and clear enough for the driver to see set next to the can. Each box is to be set neatly at the curb and cannot weigh more than fifty (50) pounds.
