For the health and safety of our community, please only place your trash out for pick-up on the night prior to, or on the morning (by 7:00 am) of the trash service day.

Will the waste management company collect my old paint cans, used motor oil, and other hazardous chemicals?
American Disposal will not take the following items: acids, fire extinguishers, ammunition, antifreeze, asbestos, automobile parts, cinder blocks, concrete, TV's, computer monitors, car batteries, chemicals, dead animals, motor oil, mulch, paint, pesticides, poisons, propane or helium tanks, sod, tires, tree stumps, dirt, rocks and stones.
Is there any special container I should use for trash?
Please ensure your trash is placed in a securely closed trash bag. Acceptable trash bags are "Hefty" style kitchen bags or outdoor bags. Please do not use small retail bags as they cannot be properly closed and allow animals to easily pull them open.
Trash bags can either be placed at the curb alone, or can be placed in a trash can. Please be sure to return trash cans to your backyard or inside your home by the evening after trash is picked-up.
Will there be a collection if the pick-up day falls on a holiday?
Trash (and recycling) is not picked-up on New Year's Day, Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day. If pick-up day falls on one of these three holidays, pick-up will resume on the next scheduled day of service.

My recycling bin has gone missing, what should I do?
First, check with your neighbors to see if your box was inadvertently picked-up. If you are unable to locate your bin, replacement boxes can be purchased from American Disposal Services for $10, or you can purchase a recycling box from local retailers such as Home Depot or Wal-Mart. Please ensure the word "Recycle" or "Recycling" is clearly marked on both sides of the new box.
