Extra – Pick Up Options, Requirements & Charges:
Extra items and/or bags are allowed (normal household items only) and will be picked up on your normal pick-up day. Prohibited items listed below. Small, light trash must be bagged. Larger items that can be lifted by a woman or child are allowed as well (as long as it is not a prohibited item). Examples of these items would be a microwave, motorized kiddy car (please remove the battery) or toilet (tank must be separated from the bowl – into two pieces).
We are charged by weight at the landfill, so extra will be charged accordingly. Charges can be minimized by placing heavier items in the cart and lighter items to the side. Examples of charges (subject to driver discretion, but very reasonable) are listed below.
Government landfill restricted items: tires, batteries, motor oil, chemicals, air conditioners, refrigerators, computers, televisions, gas cylinders, propane cylinders, Freon bottles and construction materials.
Company restricted items: dead animals of any kind, mattresses, sofas, recliners, dead animals, limbs, sharp metal objects, barbed wire, concrete, rocks and dirt, burn barrel and or burn barrel contents, tile, etc.
Glass, mirrors, paint and some light bulbs can be picked up with proper preparations as these items may explode or burst causing injury to the driver, the truck or driveways. Absolutely no wet paint. Paint must be completely dry or solidified and glass items should be wrapped and clearly marked for safety.
*Paint can take weeks to dry. Products can be purchased at hardware stores to dry them in a matter of hours.
Examples of charges:
Microwaves – $5-$25
Motorized kiddy cars, tricycles, bikes – $5-$25
Toilets – $10-$15
Bags of trash – $1-$4
Extra on a regular basis is not a billing option, therefore you may request or be required to have an additional container. Multiple cart sizes available, call for pricing.
