Pickup Items and Setout Requirements:
We attempt to maintain the same scheduled service days unless otherwise noted (See Cancellations and Delays). It is difficult to duplicate pickup times each week due to uncontrollable circumstances. To help ensure pickup, please have your trash and recycling staged within 3 feet of your curb and ready for pickup by 5:00 a. m. on collection day or the night before. Superior Trash Service is not responsible for personal trash containers and lids that are lost or damaged.

Construction debris is considered a special pick-up, listed under Special Pick-Up. Superior Trash Service will not be responsible for any items, large or small left within 10 feet of curb line.
Tying lids to trash container may endanger our employees. Sharp objects, razor blades, and knives, should be placed inside of durable plastic bottles, sealed with tape, placed in the trash and marked accordingly. Large pieces of glass should be duct taped along the edges with a large X taped in the center from corner to corner, to reduce the risk of injuries. Do not store valuable or important items in plastic trash bags. It is too easy for you to mix up the trash. Please use common sense in leaving items near your trash can on collection days. Our crews are trained to do a thorough job. Therefore, anything left within 6 feet of collection area or curb line may be collected as trash. Display your address prominently at your service location. This not only aids our collection crews and emergency vehicles as well.

Please call our office or visit our website www.SuperiorTrashService.com in advance to schedule your pickup of these items. There is a minimum charge of $20.00 for special pick-ups.
Yard Waste Collection:
We collect 4 bags/bundles of yard waste per pick-up day. Yard waste is considered grass clipping, leaves and small branches. We are not a tree removal service or Landscaping service. Brush and limbs must be less than 4 inches in diameter and cut into 4-foot lengths or less, bundled with rope or twine or bagged and cannot exceed 50 pounds in total or exceed a half cubic yard. All yard waste need to be placed outside of your bin separte from your household waste. Yard waste or bundles that do not meet these set-out requirements will not be collected. All unbundled/unbagged brush will be considered a special pick-up and will not be pickup unless a special pickup is scheduled in advance (extra charges applied). Please call our office in advance to schedule your pickup of these items.
