Commerial Service

Commercial customers must complete a Commercial Application . They may elect to receive the Standard Can Service described above or they may select from one or more 1-1/2 or 2 cubic yard dumpsters. The utility has Dumpsters for rent (Equipment Rental Agreement required) or the customer may provide their own containers that are compatible with the company’s collection vehicles and do not exceed the company’s established size standards (2 cubic yard). The company may refuse to service a customer-owned container if it is unsafe to do so in the opinion of the utility.

Under Commercial Service, the customer determines the number of pickups per week they require and pay the fee for that service in advance monthly per the Commercial Rate Schedule. Charges for rental of containers are billed separately. We will pick up additional items for a fee. Please refer to our Rate Schedule for complete detail on fees and service levels.

The customer is responsible for maintenance of the pickup area. Dumpsters must be placed on a hard, flat surface and secured from undesired movement due to wind, etc. Dumpsters must have clear and safe access for the collection vehicle. A company representative will inspect and approve of the dumpster location prior to service. ROLL OFF SERVICE We provide scheduled and unscheduled large container service using 10 to 30 cubic yard roll on/ roll off containers. A commercial application, credit application, and equipment rental agreement are required. An onsite inspection is required to insure that we can place the container in a safe manner for servicing. Temporary containers for customers who do not have established credit may require a deposit to cover estimated charges.
