  • 1. How do I find out my collection time?

    At Granger, you have a collection day, not a collection time. Your pickup time may be influenced by many factors, such as weather, staffing and equipment, and cannot be guaranteed. To ensure your trash, recycling and yard waste will be picked up, please have your items out the night before your collection day.

  • 2. Does it matter how and where I set my cart out on collection day?
    Here are some guidelines for setting your carts out on your trash, recycling and yard waste collection days:
    • Cart should face forward (wheels and handle facing away from the street)
    • Cart should be placed within 3 feet of the street
    • Cart should have a minimum of 2 feet of clearance on both sides (keep cart 2 feet away from other carts, mailboxes, cars, poles, etc.)
    • Carts should be unobstructed (no vehicles parked in front of the cart)
  • 1. How can I dispose of a large item like a couch or television?

    We are happy to dispose of large items for you. Charges vary based on the type of item. To schedule a bulk item collection, fill out the online bulk item pickup form.

    You can also haul the item yourself to one of the Granger Disposal Centers. For locations, hours and pricing, visit our Disposal Center page.

    Please note that bulk pick up is not available in all areas.

  • 2. Does Granger offer large container rentals?

    Containers are available in different sizes to meet the needs of your remodeling or cleanup project. Pricing varies depending on container size, your location and the number of days needed. All containers must be prepaid prior to delivery. More information about container rental can be found here.


  • 3. Do I need to bag my trash?

    We prefer that you bag all your trash, even if it is going in your cart. This helps keep it contained as it is being dumped in the truck. All pet waste should be double bagged.

  • 4. Is there a weight limit on my trash?

    To prevent injuries and damage to our equipment, all bags should weigh no more than 30 pounds and all carts should weigh no more than 200 pounds.

  • 5. Can I use my own container for trash pickup?

    We ask that you not use personal containers for trash pickup. Our carts are commercial-grade containers that are made to put up with the wear and tear of being serviced every week. If you don't have a Granger cart or have trash that doesn't fit in your cart, please use trash bags (30 gallons or less in size, weighing 30 pounds or less). For larger items, like furniture and appliances, visit our request service page to prepay and schedule a pickup.

  • 6. Can I dispose of needles and other sharps materials in my trash?

    Curbside trash collection is not the preferred method for disposing of sharps, but we do accept them as long as they are packaged appropriately. For packaging instructions and other methods of disposal, read our blog post.

  • 7. What size bag should I use for my trash?

    Please use trash bags that are 30-gallon size or smaller.
