Guidelines for Commercial Garbage Service

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.

  • Twice when I was taking our recycling out in the morning, I saw the recycling truck already a few houses down the street. Twice our recycle guy turned around just to pick up our recycling. I really appreciate it!

    Thank you Advanced Disposal, for all your efforts. We use both garbage and recycle services, and have not had any problems with either service. The men are very friendly and always act in a very professional manner.

  • Last week I arrived home after work and noticed my garbage had not been picked up. It was obvious that this was due to some road work that took place in front of my residence that day. I surmised that the timing of the road resurfacing coincided with the garbage pick-up and chances were that traffic was not allowed through to my house. It was getting late in the day and I went in the house and was going to go back out to retrieve the garbage can. While I was in the house, Advanced Disposal truck drove by, came back and picked up my trash. I noticed it was only my trash that they needed to retrieve. What exceptional service - coming back to service a single customer!
