Multi-Family Annual Clean Up
A Special Collection Service offered at Multi-Family Residences
This program is designed to discourage abandoned waste and increase customer satisfaction by providing tenants with a convenient collection option for miscellaneous garbage that cannot be collected through regular weekly collection services.
PLEASE NOTE: This program is NOT designed to collect bulky items, construction and demolition, or landscaping materials. Special arrangements for these materials are required and charges apply.
- The Multi-Family Annual Clean Up is a no-charge annual cleanup program offered to multi-family residential complexes once per twelve (12) month period.
- Additional cleanup services may be scheduled but applicable charges apply.
- Place miscellaneous garbage inside the debris box provided at the predetermined location.
- Review the list of acceptable items below.
- Avoid overfilling the debris box and leaving items outside of the box. The box is full once materials reach the height of the box. The box will be emptied and returned as needed during your cleanup week.
- Contact your property manager or owner if you need to dispose of any items that aren’t accepted in this program. Charges may apply.
- Do not place hazardous materials like electronic waste, automotive parts and fluids, batteries, paint, medications, sharps, wood that has been treated with chemical preservatives, and pressurized tanks inside the debris box.
