Commercial Trash Collection

Commercial service is established by contacting the office to have a Dumpster delivered and a regular schedule of pick up arranged. All commercial accounts will be charged a minimum of one dumping fee regardless of use. The customer may decide how many days a week the trash needs to be picked up for their business. If the employees note that the Dumpsters are overloaded continuously, further provisions will need to be made for keeping the trash area clean. Dumpsters available for commercial use are 2 and 3 yard capacity.

Instructions


Dumpsters are to be inside an enclosure on a concrete or asphalt pad. Specifications for the enclosure may be obtained at the Town Office. Dumpster enclosures are for the express use of containing Dumpsters. They are not to be used for storing equipment, supplies or inventory. For health and safety reasons the enclosure must be kept clean. All garbage must be placed in the Dumpsters.

Gates and latches must be kept in proper working order. The Dumpster will not be dumped unless it is at least half full. We recommend that garbage be placed in the Dumpster evenly. Cardboard boxes take up less room if they are broken down. Light weight trash, such as Styrofoam packing material should be bagged to keep it from blowing out of the truck on windy days. Extra pickups are available at your request by calling the Town Office.

Safety


A Dumpster on wheels is a dangerous instrument and may cause injury to property or persons during periods of high winds or if used in an inappropriate manner. Customers should keep Dumpsters securely within approved enclosure behind latched gates to avoid possible accidents and ensuing liability.

Snow Policy


It is the owner’s responsibility to keep the area in front of and around the Dumpster enclosure free from snow and ice. The garbologists must be able to roll the Dumpster out of the enclosure and hook it up to the truck in order to empty the trash. This must be done by 9 a.m. on the day of service when snow conditions exist. When enclosures do not meet the above listed requirements, the Dumpsters within them will not be dumped until the problems are remedied and the town office is notified requesting a call back. In such cases, a reasonable call back fee to be set by the Town Board will be charged.

Overloading Policy


The Town reserves the right to charge a fee for Dumpsters that are excessively overloaded. Dumpsters are excessively overloaded when the lid cannot come within twelve inches of closing. In the event that there is a problem, photos will be taken for documentation. The additional service charge will be added to your account. Extra pick ups will be made upon request within twenty-four hours of the request.
