RESIDENTIAL REFUSE COLLECTION STANDARDS
If using your own containers or bags, weight cannot exceed 60 pounds per container or bag. Fiber barrels, oil drums, lawn carts and wheel barrels are improper receptacles and we reserve the right not to handle these containers.
Waste and recycling should be ready for collection by 6:00 a.m. the day of your collection. We recommend putting your trash out the night before your collection day. All curbside waste and recycling should be within five feet of the curb.
Most towns are responsible for collection of brush and leaves. Please contact your town to see what their collection procedures and schedules are. If your town does not collect brush, please contact our office as we may be able to make special arrangements. Boon & Sons is not responsible for leaf collection.
A reasonable amount (1-2 cubic yards or six 30 gallon bags) of bulk items will be collected on a weekly basis provided that it is in containers, bundled or neatly arranged so as to facilitate easy collection. The material must be able to be handled by one man safely and will not damage our equipment. Additional charges may apply for amounts exceeding this limit. Contractor’s building waste, dirt, rocks, sod, trees, grass clippings, concrete, cars and similar items cannot be handled by our residential equipment. Please contact our office to arrange for roll-off service.
Hazardous waste will not be taken. Please call Monroe County’s Household Hazardous Waste Program at (585) 753-7600.
Please make sure your container is not blocked to ensure that your pickup can be made on schedule.
