  • Newspaper (no glossy colored inserts)
  • Number 1 and 2 plastic (bottle stock only)
  • Tin and Aluminum cans
If raining or snow, please save papers until the next week to keep them dry. We cannot take wet newspapers.

Special Handling/Large Items

No liquid paint. Paint can only be picked up if the lids are removed and the paint is dried up. Should your paint still be liquid, mix it with kitty litter or saw dust and let it dry.

Refrigerators/Freezers, & Air Conditioners

Appliances containing freon will be removed as normal household appliances by calling our office at 877-609-6753 for an appointment. We will subcontract the removal to a licensed individual who will remove the freon and appliance at no cost. This is normal household usage and does not cover 4 or 5 refrigerators per year for example.


If the following holidays fall on a Monday through Friday then service will be delayed until Friday (or 1 day later).
