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.

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.

HIGH STANDARDS. HAPPY CUSTOMERS.

  • I want to let you know how much we appreciate the man who picks up the recycling on our street. He is so friendly! My two year old's son favorite truck is a recycling truck, so every Thursday morning we are listening to hear the truck come down the street and then bring him outside. Each week the driver waves multiple times to my son and will always dump the bucket into the back - a huge highlight. It makes our son's day and he talks about it all morning. We realize this is above and beyond what he needs to do, so wanted to make sure he was acknowledged and you were aware of a great employee.

  • I am always impressed with the friendliness of your employees, even on the worst days, and also how hard and quickly they work. When we moved in and had tons of boxes and garbage for what seemed like weeks, they couldn't have been more helpful. We made the right choice!

    “We made the right choice!”

  • I want to thank the driver who came back to my house at the end of his route to pick up 6 bags of broken glass. Today was our pick up day, but I did not have the bags ready. I called the office and Emma helped me. She contacted the route supervisor and sent a driver to get the bags. After the day I had, that was HUGE! Thank you so much. The driver could not have been nicer. Thanks!
