Garbage Collection

As of September 1, 2016, ACE Environmental will begin collecting garbage, recycling, yardwaste and junk under contract by the City.  City employees will no longer be collecting these items.  Instructions and procedures for collection of these materials by ACE will be forthcoming.

Basic Rules to Follow (cont'd)

Collection Schedule:

Garbage is collected each week on your regular garbage collection day except on holidays.  Ace will observe the following holidays in 2017:  Memorial Day, Independance Day, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. On these weeks, garbage will be collected one day later than normal, i.e. if your garbage is normally collected on Thursday, it will be collected on Friday, if it is normally collected on Friday, it will be collected on Saturday.

Roll-A-Waste Containers:

  • You may have a maximum of two garbage and two recycle containers.  Ace will provide the first container of each type at no cost.  If more are required you must contract with Ace for a fee.
  • To obtain a roll-a-waste cart, contact Ace Environmental at (864) 877-0505.
  • The containers belong to the hauler.  You are responsible for basic care of your container. 
  • All new containers provided by the hauler have a 10-year warranty. If the cart becomes damaged due to a defect in materials or workmanship, looses a wheel(s) or lid hinge pin, the roll cart can be repaired or replaced at no charge during the warranty period.  Contact Ace Environmental at (864) 877-0505 for replacement or repair of a container under warranty.

Guidelines for containers:

  • Keep container(s) away from anything which might obstruct collection access (telephone poles, mailboxes, flower beds, trees, etc.)
  • Do NOT park vehicles in front of containers to be collected.
  • Place container(s) on the CURB LINE, the area nearest the curb, not in the street or on the sidewalk.
  • Always keep the lid closed to keep out water.  (Health Department Regulation).
  • To prevent odor and insect infestation, please wash out the container periodically.
  • Never put rocks, leaves, pine needles, grass clippings, waste oil, building materials, tires, or lead acid batteries into your container.
  • Note the serial number of your container so you can provide this to the Police Department at 967-9536 if the can becomes lost or stolen.
