We have been very pleased with the service from Trashaway Sanitation. We have been customers about 4 years now and never had any issues. They are very thorough with communicating when service is delayed for holidays and always friendly when calling in for a payment. Thanks for all the hard work in providing excellent service in our community!!

Trash Away lives up to the service we pay for without fail. They communicate the Holiday weeks when, if your pick up day is on one of the Holidays they don’t pick up, the next day they pick our trash up. It’s great to have confidence in this important service for households.

Been with this trash service company for many years. They have increased over the years but so has everyone. Polite staff and quick to respond. Always willing to allow us to add an extra can if we need it for a small charge.

Very dependable company. I have never had an issue with them. Great customer service, if I have a question I know I will be able to talk to someone. That's rare with most trash companies now. So much cheaper than other companies in the area too.

Had them for 5 years and no issues. I dont get you people with the negative review. Pay your bill on time and put your can out the night before. Stop piling trash up and all around your cans. I see some people do that all the time. Get a grip.

This company is always on time. I called because I thought my trash had no been collected. Customer service showed my can as being dumped. I went back to check and the trash was indeed dumped. I did not even realize because my can was put back exactly as I left it! The lady on the phone was very bubbly and helpful. Marking the switch to trash away has been one less headache for me. Kudos to you.

I left this morning only to notice an animal had gotten in my trash and left a mess, so I figured I would come home and clean it up since I was already running late. I came home to an empty trash can and EVERYTHING was cleaned up! I was honestly shocked because other companies come through my area and scatter trash all over and don't look back. I know it took more time than it should've for them to stop and clean up the mess. I APPRECIATE that they went out of their way to help me out! I love being able to support a local business and will continue to do so!

Excellent service for the five months that we used them. Never missed a pickup and easy to get in contact with when we had questions. Just wish they offered recycling pickup as well.

I have other companies trying to get my business but I dont care how much Trash Away charges, I would never change. They are worth the money. The driver always has my can back where I put it. Office is responsive.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      When Will My Trash Be Picked Up?

      Curbside collection services typically occur between 5AM and 5PM on your specified pick up day. Please have your can out the night before.

      How Much Trash Can I Put In My Can?

      Your can is designed to hold a max of 50 lbs. Please do not let your cans exceed this amount. It could result in the can not being completely emptied. Our employees will not reach down into the can to get stuck or loose trash. If you need to request an additional garbage pickup that will not fit in your can, please call our office.

      What Types Of Trash Can I Put In My Can?

      We only pick up regular household trash. Yard debris, paint cans, tires, appliances, oil and other chemicals will have to be taken personally to a transfer station to have these types of items recycled.

      Do I Need To Have All My Trash Bagged?

      Yes. Our trucks do not have mechanical arms that dump the cans. We have actual toters that ride with the drivers and get off to dump your can into the back of the trash truck. Having your trash bagged makes it sanitary for our helpers and ensures all trash will be dumped and nothing sticking to the can. Our employees will not reach down into the can to get stuck or loose trash. We appreciate it!

      If My Service Has Been Terminated And My Can Has Been Picked Up Due To Non-Payment, What Do I Need To Do To Reinstate My Service?

      Please call our office with the payment to reinstate services. If you make payment online or send a check, again please call our office to ensure prompt reinstatement. Please know that additional fees may apply. We are happy to get you started back!

      Do I Have To Use A Trash Away Can?

      No you do not, but we do supply them for our customers to use while with Trash Away. If you decide to use your own can, we cannot replace or fix personal cans, so you might as well use ours! Also, please take care of the can we provide and do not deface it as charges will be applied for damaged or defaced cans.

      Where Should I Put My Can For The Trucks To Dump It?

      The can should not be more than 3 feet from the street. This ensures pick up and keeps our drivers and toters safe on busy streets to keep them moving. Thanks!
