Questions to ask your hauler

Where does my garbage go? 
Trash haulers are required to inform their customers each year where they take their waste for disposal. Waste can now go to a resource recovery facility where it is processed into fuel to burn to produce electricity. 

Are there additional charges I may see itemized on my bill? 
Some haulers charge additional fees such as a fuel charge or environmental fee but do not include these in quoted rates.

How do I get rid of extra items that do not fit in my cart? 

  • Call your trash service to check if they can pick it up from your curb. Trash haulers usually require payment before pickup occurs.
  • Bring your appliances, electronics, hazardous waste, mattresses and more to Spring and Fall Cleanup days.
