Shredded paper should be bagged separately. 

When in doubt, throw it out! 

Not all paper and cardboard needs to be bagged. Large moving boxes, furniture boxes, etc can be flattened and put beside your cart. Put a large rock on top to keep the boxes blowing away. If it's raining outside, we ask you hold onto your boxes until the following week, or make sure they fit inside your cart. One common mistake people make is putting the boxes on the curb with large Styrofoam blocks inside... we do not recycle Styrofoam. 


Yes, you can use your own cart. Depending on your neighborhood, we might request that you use one of ours. When customers use the provided Sundance carts, we charge for each additional cart... so if you have multiple carts, we would also charge for your additional carts. Sometimes we provide stickers with our company name that you can use to help identify the containers for our drivers. Sometimes people use one of our carts and one of their own.

All bulk collection requests must be made in advance by calling or texting our office 24 hours in advance. Bulk collection is only offered to existing Sundance customers. 

We have a moderate-bulk policy. One FREE moderate-sized bulk item is included with your service every month. For details, visit our bulk pickup guidelines page.

Key Highlights:
1. All Bulk Items MUST be scheduled
1. Must remove condensers from appliances
2. Try posting appliances on Facebook so scrap metal companies will recycle them instead of them heading to the landfill
3. Brush piles must be cut to 4 feet in length, and bound. Limbs cannot be thicker than 4"
4. Larger items have a charge (i.e. Couches. King/Queen Mattress)
5. No Construction Debris or Dirt (No bags of top-soil or mulch)
6. Everything must be able to be loaded into our truck, safely, by one person. 
7. Customers must call ahead to schedule your bulk collection.
8. When in doubt, just ask
9. Three or more trash bags will be considered bulk

Bulk items that are over-size or not scheduled in advance, could be subject to an additional charge.

We ask our customers to have their bags on the curb by 7am. Even if we usually pickup your items in the afternoon, we may do a re-route. We try to finish our route by 4pm. If your items have not been collected by then, please call, email or text us.

Please note:
1.) We operate two separate trucks for trash and recycling. These trucks have independent schedules.
2.) All of our trucks have our logo on them. If you see a big white truck without a logo, then it's probably not us.
3.) We have GPS on our trucks. If you were missed, we will check to see when driver was in your area. We will also make sure you are routed correctly.
4.) If you are missed, we will get you picked up the following day if a truck is in your area.

Please have your bags and bins on the curb by 7am. We recommend putting your items on the curb the night before. We try to have the routes completed by 4pm. If you forget, we will get everything picked up the following week.

We operate new or like-new equipment with up-to-date safety features like backup cameras.

We have GPS monitoring on each vehicle to ensure you are picked up as scheduled.

Your material will be collected safely and on-time.

Our trucks are slightly smaller, and so they will be gentle on your roads and cul-de-sacs.  

We are locally owned and operated. We hire local as well.

We have our own recycling facility to ensure items actually get recycled.

New Customer / Setup

It is always helpful to try and cancel in writing so that you have documentation. If you cancel over the phone, have the company send you an email confirmation or text message. 

Find out when your final pick-up day will be, and then notify us so that we can have your new trash container delivered in time.

Some companies will try to charge you a "removable fee". Don't let them do this... unless there is an actual signed contract, this is a made-up charge. We have seen so much inconsistency in this area... sometimes cancelling is a quick phone call, and sometimes it requires a little more tenacity. Let us know if we can help.
