In response to the continuing effects of the Coronavirus and in observance of our employee’s safety, we are asking that all waste be placed in plastic bags and tied off to avoid any need for direct contact with the garbage.
Please continue to place your recycling loose in your container. Please break down all boxes and reduce in size as much as possible. If you exceed the capacity of the container, please bag and place with trash. However, if anyone in your household is exhibiting symptoms of any transmissible illness, please place recyclables in plastic bags and dispose of with your regular garbage.
On each regularly scheduled collection day, Best Trash will collect residential refuse located at the curbside in resident supplied cans or bags between 30 to 50 gallons in size, weighing no more than 40lbs each item. Items excluded from normal collection are dirt, rocks, bricks, tile, concrete, tires, batteries, motor oil, cooking oil, 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 results 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).

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. If items exceed the bins 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.
Best Trash will provide each current residence with ONE recycling bin. Best Trash will replace any bins that are defective or otherwise become unusable due to normal wear and tear. Lost or stolen bins can be replaced for $15.00 each by calling Best Trash.
If your regular trash or recycle collection day falls on a holiday (New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day) the collection will be made on the next regularly scheduled collection day.
