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).
Offered every collection day. 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.

Items such as appliances, furniture, mattresses will be collected on both service days, the limit is 2 large items per collection day.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 bin for recyclable materials. The recycle bin is NOT an extra trash container and will NOT be emptied as such. If items exceed container capacity, please place them adjacent to the bin well marked as recyclable materials. Cardboard is recyclable, please break down all boxes flat, and place them next to the recycle bin for collection.
Cart Care and Maintenance
Best Trash will provide each current residence with ONE 18-gallon recycling bin. Best Trash will replace any recycle bin that is defective or otherwise become unusable due to normal wear and tear. Lost or stolen bins can be replaced at $20.00 each by calling Best Trash or emailing email@example.com.
If your regular trash or recycle collection day falls on a holiday (New Years Day, Independence Day or Christmas Day) the collection will be made on the next regularly scheduled collection day.
