What do I do if my trash or recycle bin is damaged? (Broken lid, wheel, etc.)
Contact USA Hauling to schedule a free replacement.
What do I do if my bin isn't large enough to hold all my trash every week?
The current town hauling contract only allows for one trash bin per household. Landfill add on stickers are available yearly for $20 for additional household waste disposal beyond the one barrel curbside. Additional blue recycling bins are permitted, call USA Hauling to make a request. Extra recycling items can also be brought to the Landfill for free.
What happens if I had my trash or recycling out on time but it wasn't picked up?
If trash or recycling does not get picked up as scheduled, call USA Hauling immediately to have the trash hauler come back the next day.
Where do I put my bins?
Place recycling and trash bins at least three feet apart so the trucks mechanical arm can operate properly.
I had a bin full of yard waste (rocks, dirt, etc.) and they didn't take it. Why?
Do not put heavy yard waste like dirt or rocks into either barrel. The truck's mechanical arm is not designed to lift such heavy loads.
I'm moving soon, do I bring the bins with me when I go?
When a resident moves, the trash and recycle barrels stay with the house. They are the property of the trash hauler and are not to be removed from the residence.
I'm building a new house, how do I get trash and recycling bins?
Contact USA Hauling to have a trash and recycle cart delivered.
I have some large items that will not fit into my trash barrel. How can I dispose of them?
If items cannot be cut up or broken apart to fit into the trash barrel, there are two options: bring item to Landfill between 8 AM and 4 PM on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday; or schedule a bulk pickup with the Department of Public Works. The $40 pickup fee plus any additional item charges must be prepaid before the date is scheduled. Checks can be mailed or delivered to the DPW office at 230C Mountain Road. There is a 5 item limit on all pickups.
