Garbage Collection Service Guidelines


On each regularly scheduled collection day, Tuesday and Friday Best Trash will collect residential refuse located at the curbside in your own personal trash can that is between 30-50 gallon in size or you may place trash out in trash bags not weighing over 40 pounds. We will not collect trash from a previous providers trash can. Any trash must be placed at the street by the curb by 7am on the day of collection.

Excluded Items

Dirt, sod, mulch, rocks, bricks, tile, concrete, tires, batteries, motor oil, cooking oil, sheetrock, insulation, construction debris, 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 result 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).

Heavy Trash

Trees, shrubs, brush trimmings and fencing must be no larger than 4” inches in diameter, no more than 4’ feet long, tied in bundles not exceeding 40 pounds. Tied bundles are required to allow quick pick up 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 of carpet, cut less than 4 feet wide, tied in bundles not exceeding 40 pounds), will be picked up on both garbage 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 performed.

Recycleable Items
  • PAPER (including cardboard), PLASTICS (1-5,7), ALUMINUM and TIN cans and GLASS (all colors)

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. The green recycle cart is NOT an extra trash container and will NOT be emptied as such. 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 bin for collection.

Special Collection Service

For more than normal amounts of residential refuse, yard trimmings or bulk items, Best Trash does have the ability to provide a special collection service. For pricing information, please email your district name, address, and several pictures of your items to

Bin Care and Maintenance

Best Trash will provide each current residence with ONE 18-gallon recycling bin. Best Trash will replace any recycle bin that are defective or otherwise become unusable due to normal wear and tear. Lost or stolen recycle bins can be replaced at $20.00 each by calling Best Trash or emailing
