Establishing Commercial Service


Business Collection Containers.jpgGarbage Collection

It is the responsibility of the property owner or manager to contract and coordinate with the appropriate franchised service provider for the collection of solid waste from all commercial facilities, businesses and multi-family dwellings of five or more units.

Garbage must be collected for disposal at least once a week by the contracted garbage company. Any business that prepares or serves food products must have at least two collections per week.

Businesses are also responsible for recycling the material that, by weight, makes up most of its solid waste stream. This may include:

  • Fiber (office paper, cardboard, newsprint, magazines, junk-mail, fiberboard boxes, phone books, etc.)
  • Comingled containers (plastics labeled #1 - #7, glass bottles or jars, aluminum or steel cans)
  • Ferrous metals
  • Non-ferrous metals (aluminum or copper)
  • Wood
  • Other (requires Solid Waste Division approval)

New businesses must start a program within 14 days of commencing a garbage service.
