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.
