Commercial Trash Pickup Tips

Enclose Your Dumpster

Build a corral around your bin out of wood, concrete, metal or chain link fencing to keep trash from blowing around your property.

Don’t Toss Hazardous Waste

Need to dispose of items like fuel or batteries? These materials are prohibited in 6 yard bins. Bring them to a hazardous waste drop-off site instead.

Don’t Overload Your Bin

Make sure all of your trash fits inside your dumpster and that you can close the lid. If it’s overflowing, you may have to pay an overloading fee.
