How it works
All items for pick up should be bagged or placed in a container, manageable by one person, and placed at the curb or end of the driveway by 6:00 a.m. on your pick up day. Containers and/or bags must be accessible and not blocked by parked vehicles or other items that may restrict the ability to remove.
An off-route fee will apply if requested to return for pick-up if the above requirements are not met. 55 gallon barrels will not be emptied of loose garbage. As an option, we offer dumpsters & roll offs.
Please do not place yard waste, top soil/dirt, rock, gravel or concrete in bags or containers for disposal. We take pride in the services we offer and do not intentionally toss or dispose of containers or cause damage from normal dumping. Therefore, we are not responsible for damage or loss of customer containers. If contents are stuck or frozen in the container(s) at the time of pick-up, we will be unable to completely empty the container(s).
A recycling program is in place inside the city limits of Montezuma, Brooklyn, Malcom, Deep River, Searsboro & Guernsey. The program consist of Audas Sanitation providing
each resident with a recycling cart.
