All Containers

Containers must not be blocked and trucks must have access to provide service. 

Please make sure waste is contained, within safe capacity levels and not overflowing. Drivers may not be able to service overloaded containers. 

Please do not place any hazardous materials in container. This includes: any waste solid or liquid waste material resulting from the manufacturing or use of pesticides, highly flammable or explosive wastes, caustic wastes, toxic wastes, and any other material that the Health Authority determines to be a likely hazard to the public health, safety or environment. 

Containers must be placed and remain on a hard, level surface and must be secure. 

The placement of enclosures and containers can have a direct effect on safety.  An improperly placed enclosure or container may lead to accident, injury, or property damage.  Check with your Advanced Disposal representative to ensure safe placement.

Additional Guidelines for Roll-off Containers

Containers may not be loaded above the top of the container and the weight must be evenly distributed. 

Thirty (30) yard containers may not be used for concrete, dirt, stumps, bricks or any other heavy materials. 

Twenty (20) yard containers must be used for very heavy loads and may be filled only half full.  

Preferred maximum weight of 20,000 lbs. varies by state regulations.

  • We've only lived here one year. Our very first week I was going crazy trying to get moved in and setting up new services. You guys not only picked up our trash immediately, you didn't charge us for the first month. You are very friendly and helpful if I ever have questions. Thanks for the terrific service!

  • This morning, the wind was howling when the truck dumped trash from the front of the truck to the back. Lots of trash went flying. We observed the driver get out and pick up everything that was on the ground! Also, our can had been tipped over by the wind. He picked it up and proceeded to dump it. Thanks for hiring such caring people!

  • I have always been very impressed with my service, trash disposal, lawn waste, and recycling. I've never had issues with any one of the three pick-up services. They always take what I put out for them. I do think I speak for my little neighborhood as well, we do like the service.

  • On behalf of the citizens of Decatur, I would like to thank your company's team for working with our city government's community programs by donating trash trailers in the city's efforts in cleaning up the community. We could not have accomplished the task without the help of your local company's team. The community is truly grateful.
