Allied Waste Services provides high-quality and reliable disposal services for commercial and industrial customers. There are many container sizes available to you for garbage service. Rates depend on bin size and frequency of service.
Available only in 1, 2, 3 and 4 cubic yards. Wheeled garbage containers are recommended for customers who plan to store the bins in an enclosed area and must have the bins moved to an area accessible to a collection truck on their service day.
Following are guidelines for customers using wheeled containers:
Pull the container from storage and place it outside for servicing before 4 a.m. of your service day.
Leave the container on a level surface and in an area that is accessible from the street. The collection truck will need a roadway that is at least 30 feet wide.
The area around the container should be clear of any overhead obstructions.
Bins without Wheels
Available only in 5, 6 and 8 cubic yards. Stationary garbage containers are suitable for areas that are easily reached by the customer and the collection truck servicing the containers.
The containers must be stored on a level surface.
For safety reasons, the area surrounding the container must also be level with at least 10 feet of space between the front portion of the container and any nearby wall or object.
The container must be stored in a location that is free of any overhead obstructions.

California's new Mandatory Commercial Recycling Law With the passage of (Chapter 476, Statutes of 2011 [Chesbro, AB 341]), California is one of the first states in the nation to enact a statewide program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by diverting commercial solid waste from landfills.
