Best Trash takes great pride in our recycle program. Ensuring the best recycle program for our customers takes time and effort on both sides. Please remove caps, liquids and food products from inside the containers. Please only use the provided recycle cart for recyclable materials. The green recycle cart is NOT an extra trash container and will NOT be emptied as such. If items exceed container capacity, please place them adjacent to the cart well marked as recyclable materials. Cardboard is recyclable, please break down all boxes flat, and place them next to the recycle container for collection.

Cart Care and Maintenance

Best Trash will provide each current residence with ONE 65-gallon trash cart and ONE 65-gallon recycling cart. Best Trash will replace any containers that are defective or otherwise become unusable due to normal wear and tear. Lost or stolen containers can be replaced for a fee by calling Best Trash or emailing

Holiday Schedule

If your regular trash or recycle collection day falls on a holiday (New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, or Christmas Day) the collection will be made on the next regularly scheduled collection day.
