Our staff will collect where your drive meets the main road or in the alley behind your home. Access off of the main road or to private property requires an additional paid driveway service. Please have material out for collection no later than 8:00 A.M. Credit is not issued if material is not out or inaccessible.

One Way Disposal Inclement Weather Policy Reminder
Missed Service: We will only issue notice of missed collections via telephone due to equipment failure or landfill closures. Notification via telephone will not be issued if weather or road conditions have prohibited our ability to complete a route. For all other service misses, please contact customer service immediately. If notice is not received within 5 business days after the service date in question, the account will not be eligible for correction.
We understand the inconvenience of not having refuse collected, especially during bad weather, but ultimately safety must come first. If weather poses a threat to our employees, bystanders, surroundings, etc. it must be understood by everyone affected that we will not complete the route & we will issue a double limit for the following week. Living in rural areas with steep inclines, heavier snowfall, & icier conditions comes with its inconveniences. Missed refuse services due to safety concerns fits in that category. Refuse trucks weigh between 18-20 tons (empty), the average UPS truck is 5 tons (full), the average personal vehicle weighs 1-2 tons, & a school bus weighs 12.5 tons. Having a heavier vehicle means more friction but it also means more inertia to break that friction. In turn, our trucks will lose traction faster than the school bus & it will not stop if on an incline. All trucks are equipped with chains & meaty snow tires but in many cases, even the chains will not create enough traction to keep our trucks from sliding around. We’ve had trucks slide off sides of mountains, slide straight through houses, as well as right into trees in a flat parking lot going less than 5mph. The fact of the matter is inclement weather & our trucks do not mix well at all. At the end of the day, lives are more important & we must make decisions to keep our employees as well as everyone around us safe. We appreciate everyone’s understanding in the matter & we hope to finish the season out in a smooth manner.
