Please have trash at the curb by 7 a.m. each pick-up day.
On each regularly scheduled collection day, WCA will collect residential refuse located at the curbside; refuse must be either in containers or bags not exceeding 40 gallons or weighing over 40 pounds.
Trees, shrubs, brush trimmings and fencing must be bundled in lengths no greater than 4 feet with no branch diameter exceeding 3 inches. The bundling is required to allow quick pick-up, and size limitations are required to avoid damaging the equipment in the crushing process. All residential waste materials except tree and yard waste must be in containers, bags or bundles not exceeding 40 pounds.
Items such as appliances, furniture, carpet (up to 1 room, rolled up 4 feet wide and less than 50 pounds), cardboard boxes (flattened), will be picked up either day. By Federal Law, refrigerators and freezers or other items containing Freon must be drained of Freon and have an accompanying bill to validate such service was performed.
Items excluded from normal collection are dirt, rocks, bricks, concrete, tires, batteries, motor oil, cooking oil, waste generated by a private contractor or any materials or items deemed hazardous materials. WCA will leave a tag explaining the reason for non-collected item(s).
For other than normal amounts of residential refuse, yard trimmings or bulk items, if notified in advance, WCA will meet with a resident prior to collection day to determine a price. If a resident does not notify WCA of such a special pick-up before its scheduled day, then WCA will leave a notice for the resident to contact Contractor during normal office hours before the next scheduled pick-up day.
WCA will clean up any spillage that occurs during the collection or recycling process. However, if gasoline, motor oil, paints, cooking oil, or any other liquid items in a container that are not visible to Contractor personnel result in spillage that causes a stain, WCA cannot be responsible.
When regular pick-up falls on a holiday (New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4 – Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day), the pick-up will be made on the next regular scheduled pick-up day.
