Cart Placement & Recycling Information

Modern Waste Systems uses an automatic loading arm that will load your trash and recycling cart items into their trucks. (No other containers may be used for your trash or recycling pick-ups.) Instructions for placement of these carts curbside are on the inside lid of the carts.

Twice a Week Trash Pick-Up on Monday & Friday

Bulk Item Pick-Ups

A bulk item consists of an item that is too large to fit into the provided cart during a normal scheduled service day. Bulk items must be pre-authorized and scheduled by the LCPOA office staff. There will be an additional fee of $10/item paid to the LCPOA office. Carpet would need to be tied in rolled 4’ rolled sections not to exceed 50 lbs. per roll. Bulk items should not be heavier than what 2 people can safely lift.
