Garbage & Recycling Pick-Up by Richard’s Sanitation

Garbage totes are black with black lids. Recycling totes are black with yellow lids and display the recycling icon. Totes are to be out at the curb by 6:00am for pickup. Lid opening must be facing toward the road and 3 feet away from any object. All garbage in the tote must be in some type of garbage bag. Totes are considered full when garbage or recycling is to the top and lid is shut. Extra garbage or recycling on top or around tote will not be picked up.

Totes cannot be put out prior to 5:00pm the night before pickup and must be removed by 7:00pm the day of pickup. Totes will not be put on temporary suspension (vacation, winter months). Totes are the property of the contractor and are not to be removed from the address assigned. If removed or destroyed, totes will be replaced at the customers cost of $80.00 for each tote. The contractor is not responsible for any accidents involving totes while in possession of the customer.
