Area Refuse Bulk Pick Up


This service is for items that cannot be collected with the regular trash collection.  Call or email for price/schedule.


Due to a change in Landfill rules and regulations, we will no longer be able to collect recycling from our customers if it has any plastic bags, food debris or Styrofoam mixed in.  This includes, but is not limited to, trash bags, grocery bags, bread bags and zip lock bags.  

Please be sure to rinse or clean any food residue from your recycling before it is placed in your recycling containers.

If you would like to bag you're recycling before placing it in your toter, please make sure to use paper bags.

If you have any questions about what can or cannot be recycled, we have the county guidelines listed on our website under the recycling tab.  Or, you can contact the Carroll County Landfill.
