The part-time truck runs M – F approx. 6 hrs per day. All residential dumpsters are picked up once per week except for very unusual circumstances that may require additional service.

Residential Trash Route

Residential Dumpster Sizes and Placements

There are two sizes of dumpsters that are used: 3 yard & 1.5 yard dumpsters, 3 yard dumpsters are the most common. In most locations where there are houses on both sides of an alley, one dumpster per every four residences is used. When there are houses on only one side of an alley, one dumpster per every two residences is used. When a residence is isolated and a good distance away from their closest neighbor a 1.5 yd dumpster is used for that singular residence.

Commercial Schedules

Commercial account collections and schedules are included in the residential collection schedules with the exception that they may have several pickups per week as required to meet their needs and budget. The part-time trash truck covers commercial accounts that require additional pickups outside of a day that one of our full-time trucks are not in the area.
