Custom Disposal Service observes the following holidays each year and will not be working when they fall on a weekday. If Independence day (July 4th), Christmas day, or New Years’ Day falls on a Saturday or Sunday, there will be no change in your normal pick-up day.
If your normal pick-up day falls on the actual holiday or your pick-up day is after the actual holiday during the holiday week, your pick-up day will be delayed one day. This includes all routes for the remainder of the holiday week. This includes Friday pick-ups, which means we will be by on Saturday.
Note: If your pick-up day is before the actual holiday during the holiday week, your day of service will not change. Always have your garbage out at the curb by 6:30 A.M. on your pick-up day to insure a pick-up. Our schedule may be altered from time to time due to reasons beyond our control.
Yes – Christmas trees are picked-up on your regular pick-up day for $12.00 per tree. This charge also includes artificial trees. Please place your payment to Custom Disposal in a plastic baggie and attach it to the tree in a visible location.
Your account may be subject to a 10% Fuel recovery fee should the national average for diesel fuel exceed $3.00 per gallon. This fee will be removed immediately upon your next billing cycle when the national average for diesel fuel drops back below $3.00 per gallon.
Currently, our Cancellation Recovery Fee (CRF) is $15.00. When customers initiate service we absorb all the costs involved to get the service rolling without charging any deposits. This includes the cost of the new roll-cart(s), and labor and fuel on delivery as well as all the admin cost with setting up new accounts. When service is terminated we also incur expenses, such as labor and fuel for travel to and from to pick up the cart(s). Then we have to refurbish the cart for use once again.
This ensures that all trash is removed properly and helps keep trash off of the street and your neighborhood beautiful. This is a Cobb Co. ordinance (found in Chapter 102 Article 2 Section 102-69-Customer’s Requirements ).
We will pick up moving boxes with no additional charge as long as they are broken down flat and placed at the curb in an organized manner. All packing paper and packing peanuts must be bagged and tied.
All yard waste must be bagged in paper biodegradable bags or bundled with twine. We have a 5-bag or bundle limit. Bundles must be no longer than 3ft. and no heavier than 40lbs. Tree limbs must be under 4 inches in diameter. Rocks, dirt, trees, and concrete are not considered to be yard waste and will not be picked-up on our regular truck due to possible damage to our compactors and due to your normal monthly charges. If you have any of these items listed that you need picked-up, you must call our office and schedule a special pick-up or order a roll-off container. *There are limits and charges for yard waste in some areas. In most cases we can take more than 5 bags as long as payment of $1.25 per bag over the limit is attached or paid for in advance of your pick-up day.
Monthly rates are assessed based on average household waste produced along with our cost of labor to pick-up, transportation, and current disposal rates at the local facility we utilize.
All other items above the average are subject to additional charge. Currently our maximum limit we will pick-up for your current monthly charge is 1, 95-gallon roll-cart and up to 5 additional bags or the equivalent of 5 additional bags. You can put out 5 bags of yard waste (in paper biodegradable bags) or 5, 45-gallon trash bags or a combination of each totaling 5 bags. All bags must not exceed 40 pounds. Anything items that exceed our maximum needs to be paid for in advance or at time of pick-up. You may call our office ahead of time or pay at time of pick-up. The cost is generally $1.25 for each extra bag 40 lbs. or lighter.
It is illegal for us to pick up and dispose of any hazardous waste such as: gasoline, oil, antifreeze, car batteries, liquid paint, acids, etc. However, paint can be picked up if it is in a solid state. This can be achieved by mixing an equal part of cat litter with the paint and allowed to harden for a few days. Once the paint has hardened, we can pick it up. Please leave the lid off each can of solid paint and place it on the ground next to your trash can.
Any liquids that are discarded for us to pick-up, have a good chance of leaking onto the roadway in front of your and/or your neighbor’s homes. Our trucks are not 100% leak proof for liquids. Absolutely no paint or Oil should ever be placed in your container for pick-up. It is illegal and could result in a fine from the EPA or the Disposal service we deliver to.
