Yes, absolutely, as long as you empty your materials into our bin when you put it out for collection.
Place it outside your door or at the end of your driveway the night before your pick-up day. We will empty it between 6 AM and 7 PM on your scheduled day.
It happens to all of us. Just send a message to us through the Member Portal or to our email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll arrange for your bin to get picked up. Additional charges may apply for multiple off-schedule pick-ups.
Our bins are airtight, so as long as you keep the lid on, you shouldn't experience any smells. And each week, your bin will be freshly lined.
