Winter Service Tips for Commercial Customers

To ensure you receive the best possible service from us during times of extreme weather, and to keep everyone safe, please help us by following a few safety guidelines.

  • Clear space for collection trucks
    Make sure access to your facility is plowed and heavily sanded, and there is adequate space for waste trucks to turn around.
  • Clear access to containers the night before
    Remove snow away from your dumpster and sand heavily in areas needed for traction. Excess snow will prevent both your employees and ours from accessing the containment area. This includes the gates, inside the enclosure, and the direct path that leads to it.
  • Bag garbage and close lids
    Bag your garbage and close lids of the container after use. ​ Open lids allow snow and rain to collect in the container. Exposed wet items freeze to your dumpster in cold winter temperatures. Un-bagged garbage can freeze in the containers, making it difficult for our drivers to safely empty your frozen dumpster. Un-bagged trash can also lead to waste being left behind after pick-up.
