How do we start service?

We'd like to start a new waste prevention and/or recycling program but lack the funds for necessary equipment and training. What should we do?
What should I do if not all of our garbage, recyclables or organics was picked up on our last service day?

What belongs in each of my collection containers?
If you need an extra pickup, would like to increase your service level, or need to report a missed pickup, please contact us
immediately. If you were missed, we'll send a driver back around within one business day. To facilitate service, make sure your collection container(s) are not overloaded or blocked.

My business has a one-time surplus of food. I'd hate for it to go to waste-- any suggestions?
