Safe Collection

The Trash Company strives to assure the complete safety of our customers, our employees and the public in all our operations.

5 Steps to Safe & Efficient Collection

  1. Place only acceptable materials in the trash cart and do not overfill.
  2. Do not bag recycling materials AND close the lid to prevent littering.
  3. Place the carts at the end of your driveway the night before your collection day.
  4. Space carts for safe and efficient collection. (see diagram)
  5. After cart is emptied, remove from driveway.

When you and your neighbors place carts a safe distance from other carts and objects, it allows the trucks to safely and promptly empty the carts.

Why Cart Spacing Matters

  • The 18’ height spacing is needed to reduce overhead hazards like powerlines and trees.
  • The 3’ cart spacing is needed to accommodate the collection process.
  • The 5’ distance is needed to safely empty the cart near trees, cars, mailboxes, etc.
