What is automated service?
Automated service utilizes a truck equipped with a mechanical arm that lifts your trash and recycling containers from the street and empties the containers' contents into the truck - without the driver ever leaving the cab. This type of service is successfully used in more than 2,800 communities in the United States.
Automated trash service offers many benefits.
It provides greater flexibility to our customers. You may select the size of trash and recycling containers that best fit your needs, whether 32 gallons, 64 gallons or 96 gallons. Separate containers are utilized for trash, mixed recyclables and greenwaste.
It is also more convenient. You can also fill your containers without having to worry about how heavy the contents are - simply wheel the containers to the curb on your service day and the truck's mechanical arm will do the rest.
The automated containers are more durable, and reduce the likelihood of tipping or spilling. Because they are uniform in appearance, they also help neighborhoods look neater and cleaner.
Utilizing an automated system also allows us to offer greenwaste collection in most service areas, dedicating one container for weekly greenwaste recycling.
