All provided equipment will be the customer responsibility until service is stopped or ended. There may be a fee charged if any equipment is lost, damaged, or stolen.

If you have placed a personal item next to or close to your trash contain or recycle container that was not intended to be trash or recycle, and it is taken with your pickup, we are not liable if it has been unloaded at the landfill or recycle plant by the time we have been notified. If it has not been taken to the landfill or recycle plant by the time we are notified, depending on the item and area, a decision will be made if the customer must pick it up at our facility or if we are able to deliver it back to the customer.
