Holiday Closure Note: Commercial customers, if you plan to close on a holiday that is not observed by the city AND your dumpster will not be accessible to our trucks (behind a closed fence, etc.) please leave a message at our office at least three business days before that day to discuss other arrangements. If you do not contact us beforehand and we are unable to service your dumpster on your regular pick-up day, a return service fee will apply.
