For Collection

Place garbage and recyclables at the roadside, within 5 feet of the road, before 6:00 am on your pickup day. If you have a ditch in front of your property, place garbage and recyclables between the road and the ditch.

Garbage and recyclables will be collected on the same day in separate trucks, at different times during the day.

Large Items

A large item is any refuse that cannot be placed in cans or bags easily. ONLY ONE LARGE ITEM WILL BE PICKED UP EACH WEEK AT THE ROADSIDE.  Refrigerator doors and shelves must be removed and the customer must call Modern Disposal (# below) on the FRIDAY prior to their scheduled pickup day. Large items will be collected on the same day as regular service and placed in the compactor truck. These items shall include, but are not limited to furniture, mattresses and box springs, carpets, appliances, Christmas trees, or carpeting (rolled and tied 4 foot lengths).

Special Collection

If you have a refrigerator, freezer, air conditioner or dehumidifier to dispose of, please put these items out on your collection day during the last full work week of each month. Any of these items will be considered your large item for that week. A separate vehicle will collect these items the day after the regular service day. Doors must be removed.


Paint Cans-the lid must be off and the cans are to be set next to the trash can so the driver can see that the contents are dry. Clump-able cat litter can be used to dry up any contents prior to disposal.
Cold Ashes-must be cold and contained either in a bag or a cardboard box so the ashes do not go airborne as they are placed in the truck.

Holiday Schedule

New Year’s Day / Memorial Day / Independence Day / Labor Day / Thanksgiving Day / Christmas Day

If your collection day is on, or follows any of these holidays during the week, then your collection will be one day late.

How To Get A Recycling Bin
