bag your excess
garbage and tie it off and set it two feet away from your
garbage cart. For costs on extras, please contact our office
your garbage cart is heaped above the cart rim you will
be charged as if you had an
bag. Heaped cans
can lead to garbage spilling out of the can as it is
lifted into the truck. Additionally, it can spill over
of the truck and fall to the ground on the other side
of the vehicle which could cause injury to persons nearby
or property damage.
do not over pack your garbage into the cart. It can become
overweight and the garbage lodged into the cart so as it will not fall
out when the cart is
dumped. Additional charges will result when requesting
a run back to dump the half empty cart.
If for some reason
your garbage, recycling, or yard debris is missed, please call our
office at 503.648.4219 as soon as possible.
If your pick up was missed by our driver, we will return for pick up
either the next day or the next collection day with no charge for extras.
If the pick up was missed due to the customer not having the can out,
there will be an extra charge to return for the pick up.
