  • Barrington Park and North Lake Village: Tuesday
  • Greenway Village, Meadow Green and Meadow Place: Monday

On each regularly scheduled collection day, Best Trash will collect residential refuse located at the curbside in the provided roll-out carts. Please place cart in the street adjacent to the curb. Residents are restricted to one cart for refuse and are encouraged to confine refuse to the cart, however additional refuse may be placed in containers (between 30- 50 gallons) or bags (not weighing over 40 pounds) and placed next to the Best Trash provided trash cart.

Items excluded from normal collection are dirt, rocks, bricks, concrete, tires, batteries, motor oil, cooking oil, waste generated by a private contractor or any materials or items deemed hazardous materials. Please do not dispose of gasoline, motor oil, paints, cooking oil, or any other liquid items in a container that are not visible to Best Trash personnel. If such items results in spillage that causes a stain, Best Trash is not responsible for the cleanup. Best Trash will leave a tag explaining the reason for any non-collected item(s).

Trees, shrubs, brush trimmings and fencing must be tied and bundled in lengths no greater than 4 feet with no branch diameter exceeding 3 inches. The bundling is required to allow quick pickup and size limitations are required to avoid damaging the equipment in the compacting process.

Items such as appliances, furniture, mattresses, carpet (up to 1 room, rolled up four feet wide and less than 40 pounds, bundled and tied), will be picked up on both of your collection days. By Federal Law, refrigerators, freezers, and any other items containing Freon must be drained of Freon and have an accompanying bill to validate such service was

An enhanced feature of BEST TRASH is special pick up for items excluded by the contract. If notified in advance, Best Trash will meet with you prior to your collection day to determine a price to haul away non-contract items. If you do not notify Best Trash of such a special pick-up before your scheduled collection day, we will leave a notice for you to contact Best Trash during normal office hours to arrange a price and time for the special collection.

Best Trash takes great pride in our recycle program. Ensuring the best recycle program for our customers takes time and effort on both sides. Please remove caps, liquids and food products from inside the containers. Please only use the provided recycle cart for recyclable materials; it is NOT an extra trash container.

Best Trash will collect paper (including cardboard), plastics (1-7), aluminum and tin cans, and glass (all colors) that are placed within the provided recycling cart. If items exceed container capacity, please place them adjacent to the cart well marked as recyclable materials. Cardboard is recyclable, please break down all boxes flat and place them next to the recycle cart for collection. If you find items left in your cart, it means they are not recyclable. Please dispose of these items in your trash container for the next scheduled pick up.

Best Trash will provide each current residence with one recycling cart and one trash cart. Best Trash will replace any carts that are defective or otherwise become unusable due to normal wear and tear. Lost or stolen trash carts can be replaced at $75.00 each, recycling carts, $20.00, by calling Best Trash.
