Garbage Cleaning Services
Safety is a top priority for Waste Management and is a shared responsibility that starts right at your waste container. A properly filled, maintained and serviced container is crucial in keeping our customers and our employees free from harm. To that end, we would like to share with you some best practices in proper waste disposal to help you maintain a waste area that is functional and safe for both you and our drivers.
These tips provide a few helpful suggestions on proper waste disposal such as: reducing container odor, keeping your waste area clean, and disposing of bulky items.
Loading Container: When loading your container, please ensure that your container lid can fully close. If your trash is unable to fit in the container with the lid fully closed, we will be unable to service your waste area. Keep in mind that if your trash volumes do change, we can adjust your service by increasing your container size or collection frequency. Remember, a quick service adjustment will allow you to keep up with your growing demands as well as help you avoid additional fees caused by container overflow or spilled trash in the waste area.
Reduce Odor: To help reduce odor around your waste area, remember to tightly bag your trash before placing it in your container. This will help to reduce bacteria build up and odor caused by spilled garbage.
Keep it clean: Regular cleaning of your container and the waste area surrounding the container will help to keep the waste area clean for easy access, reduce odor and minimize insects.
Cleaning your garage or shed: When cleaning out your garage or shed, please keep in mind that the following items are not apart of your normal waste collection pick up and should not be placed in your container: paint, paint thinners, oil, oil filters, oil rags and insecticides.
In addition, the following items require special handling and may not be placed in your waste or recycling containers:
- Appliances, batteries, chemical products, construction debris, electronics, flammables, fluorescent bulbs, hazardous waste, pesticides, liquids, medical waste/needles, tires.
