Welcome! Thank you for choosing The Garbage Man. We specialize in residential curbside trash pick-up in Livingston County, Michigan.
Here are a few important “Service Guidelines” you will need to know about your residential service:
- You MUST call in large or “out of the ordinary” items such as: appliances, furniture, carpet, and construction debris. There may be extra charges that apply for these types of materials.
- All yard waste will be $1.00/bag. Yard waste MUST be in the brown paper yard waste bags. You MUST call the office before your pick-up day in order to get your yard waste picked up. We accept yard waste April-October and pick it up every other week. Please check our website for the yard waste pick up schedule.
- We recommend placing your trash out the night before your scheduled pick-up day. All trash must be out by 6:00 AM. We will not return to pick up trash that is not set out on time.
- You may have up to (4) 30-gallon trash cans OR (12) 13-gallon kitchen size bags. If you use our 95-gallon curb cart rental you may have an additional 30-gallon trash can OR (3-4) 13-gallon kitchen size bags.
- The Garbage Man will not be held liable or responsible for damage to trash cans that are not the property of The Garbage Man.
- Sharing will not be permitted; one household per account.
- If a Holiday falls on a weekday (M-F) there is a one day layover the remainder of that week. Friday’s scheduled pick-ups will be made on Saturday.
- We observe (6) holidays; New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.
- We offer a recycling program which requires the use of special 30-gallon recycling bags. These bags come in 10 packs ($10.00 per 10 pack) which can be delivered to your home. The bag fee is the only cost to you for recycling.
- You MUST call the office to cancel your account and set a last pick-up date. No refunds will be given if you cancel in the middle of a quarter.
Please, feel free to call us if you have any questions or concerns. Office hours are Monday-Friday from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
