Back Door Service:
Free Back Door Service may currently be available to residents who are physically unable to carry their waste to the curb.
To qualify, residents must be physically unable to carry their containerized trash to the curb, and provide a letter from a practicing physician stating as much including the current date and name of patient. There cannot be another household resident capable of carrying the container to the curb.
Garbage containers may not necessarily be located at a literal “back door” of a residence. Back door service includes any physical location for the placement of residential waste containers or bags on the customer’s property that is not curbside, but that is accessible by the solid waste collection company.
To obtain back door service, eligible residents must complete a Back Door Service Request and submit it along with the doctor’s letter to:
