Automated and Semi-Automated Trash Pickup

Automated curbside collection is clean, quiet, and efficient. We use a trash truck with an extendable arm to easily pick up your garbage can, empty it, and set it down carefully, greatly reducing the impact on your environment and decreasing the amount of time we spend in your neighborhood. For automated trash pickup, placement of your garbage can is crucial: make sure it faces the street, the lid is closed, and there are at least 10 feet of clearance from things like vehicles, mailboxes, etc.

For semi-automated trash pickup, our waste pickup specialists will ensure your garbage is removed carefully with no spills or messed. This hands-on approach to garbage collection is perfect for neighborhoods with cars parked on the street or other blockages in the way. For semi-automated trash pickup, all you’ll need to do is put your trash can on the curb—we’ll handle the rest!

To learn more about automated and semi-automated trash pickup, call us at 302-262-8254 or contact us online.
