Household Garbage

Household Garbage

Every modern household generates some amount of waste, and that’s just fine. We offer the household garbage collection services that families need to keep their homes safe, sanitary, and free of unnecessary junk, and our responsible waste collection practices mean that our customers don’t have to worry about reducing their environmental impact. They can rest assured that we’ll do it for them.


Scheduled Trash Pickup

Every family’s needs are a little different. Whether you need one bin of garbage picked up each week or several, we can come up with a solution to help you manage your waste stream efficiently. Our scheduled pickups will always be on-time, and we offer both garbage bins and recycling bins to help ensure that everything gets where it needs to go.


Items that Can Be Disposed of in Household Trash

Almost all the waste generated by modern households can be disposed of in landfills, incinerators, or transfer stations. It can be disposed of in either permanent bins or temporary dumpsters depending on residents’ needs. Most household waste streams include small items like product packaging, broken consumer goods, recyclable cans and bottles, and organic waste like kitchen scraps. Our commitment to customer satisfaction means that we can process all these and more, and our commitment to the environment leads us to take every possible step to ensure that we do so responsibly.


Items That Should Be Recycled

We offer single-stream recycling services for our customers, so you don’t have to worry about sorting cans, bottles, paper, cardboard, and plastic separately. Just throw them in the recycling bin and let us handle the rest. Here are a few items that belong in recycling facilities, not landfills:

Organics Recycling

Like the recyclable materials listed above, organics like food scraps and yard waste don’t belong in a landfill. They can be used to make rich, nutrient-dense compost for growing vegetables, flowers, and lawns. Not all residents have the ability to compost on-site, though, which is why we partner with municipal programs, where available, to collect organic matter and get it where it needs to go to be put to good use instead of rotting in a landfill. Here are a few of the most common types of organic waste we collect for processing:

  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Baked goods
  • Meat and seafood, including bones and shells
  • Dairy products
  • Coffee grounds and filters
  • Teabags
  • Food-soiled paper and cardboard products
  • Leaves and other yard waste

Options for Large Junk Disposal

While most of the waste produced by modern households is small and able to fit in a waste bin or a recycling bin, there are some circumstances where households need to get rid of larger items. Whether you’re about to redecorate a living room and want to get rid of the old furniture or you plan to remodel an entire home, we’ve got the solutions you need. Our dumpsters come in many sizes and we take care of placement and removal, so all you have to do is tell us what size you need, arrange a pickup date, fill the dumpster, and let us take care of the rest.


As with regular household waste, we ensure that residential remodeling waste gets where it needs to go. If there’s metal, wood, or corrugated cardboard in the mix, we’ll send it to a recycling facility that specializes in separating these source materials and repurposing them for industrial applications.


When there’s no choice but to send 100% of the waste from a residential dumpster to a landfill, we take every precaution to make sure it gets there safely. Our customers will never see the trash from their dumpsters forming tumbleweeds and rolling down their streets, nor will they hear about illegal dumping. We genuinely believe in ethical disposal, not just because we know our customers care about the environment, but because we do, too.


Accepted Items

While residential dumpsters can accommodate most forms of junk generated by remodeling or clean-outs, there are a few limitations on what we can take. First, let’s look at what can go into a residential dumpster. Here are a few examples of accepted waste:

  • Most furniture
  • Appliances that do not contain hazardous fluids or components
  • Electronic waste
  • Curtains and carpeting
  • Old documents and weathered books
  • Most unused children’s toys
  • Drywall
  • Wood
  • Siding
  • Most other renovation debris

Prohibited Items

Residential customers should never dispose of hazardous materials in ordinary trash bins or rented dumpsters. They can’t be thrown in a landfill or processed in an incinerator since doing so would cause damage to the surrounding environment and nearby residents’ health. Instead, they must be disposed of appropriately at specialized facilities. Here are a few common household items that fall into this category:

  • Paint, lacquers, and wood stains
  • Scrap tires
  • Asbestos
  • Pesticides
  • Automotive fluids
  • Propane tanks
  • Household cleaners
  • Contaminated absorbents
  • Medical waste
  • Car batteries

Importance of Ethical Waste Management

Not all waste management companies focus on ethical practices, but we do. We know that our customers want to do the right thing, so we try our best to make it easy for them by offering recycling services and, when possible, organics recycling so they can rest easy knowing they’re doing the right thing.


We never dump our garbage illegally and we route all reusable or recyclable materials to a specialist who can ensure that they are repurposed, not burned in an incinerator, or left to rot in a landfill. We all share a responsibility for taking care of the environment, and ethical waste management plays a huge role.

The Bottom Line

Whether you’re looking for a permanent household garbage bin or a temporary dumpster to accommodate a clean-out or renovation, we’ve got you covered. Give us a call to find out about our options, arrange a temporary or permanent rental, or schedule a pickup.
