Three things your garbage collector wants you to know

SPONSORED

When it comes to collecting trash, efficiency is key. No one wants a missed pick-up. And proper placement of trash and recycling carts can not only ensure your waste gets hauled away, but also helps drivers complete their routes promptly. What is proper cart placement? Here are three things your Advanced Disposal garbage collector wants you to know when you place your carts at the curb:

1. Avoid overflow

Make sure everything fits inside the cart so that the lid can stay closed. Depending on the service guidelines for your location, materials outside of the cart may not get picked up. Avoiding overflow can also help reduce the amount of litter that ends up on the ground when the container is being dumped. Residents should also make sure to break down larger items so they don’t get lodged inside the cart.

2. Lids should open toward the street

When putting your cart out, make sure to place it at the edge of the driveway with the wheels and handle facing the house and the lid opening toward the street. That will ensure side loading trucks can easily dispose of the cart’s contents.

3. Leave some space

Keep at least three feet of space around all sides of the cart to allow garbage trucks easy access. Obstructions such as trees, mailboxes, vehicles or even other rubbish carts can slow down the collection service process. It’s also important to keep the street clear so drivers can easily access your cart.

By following these tips, you can help Advanced Disposal do its job more quickly and efficiently.
