Residential Collection

It is our goal to provide quality and cost-effective residential garbage collection to every customer we service. Southwest Disposal provides trash pick up services to municipalities, single-family homes, homeowner associations, and individual subscription services. We have multiple options available to meet your disposal needs.

We provide a 96-gallon cart on wheels that is placed curbside for weekly collection.

If you need something larger, we also offer metal dumpsters ranging in size from 2 – 8 cubic yards. Click here to see our commercial service options.

Residential Garbage Carts

Cart Placement & Pickup Guidelines

Collection services begin at 6:00 am Monday through Friday and carts should be placed where the curb meets the road. To ensure clean and effective pick up, please:

  • Bag all trash
  • Leave 3 feet between containers and keep the cart at least 6 feet away from vehicles, trees, fences, and mailboxes.
  • Face the cart with the lid opening towards the street and the handles facing your home
  • Do not overfill the cart
When possible, trucks with robotic arms will life, empty, and return the carts to the curb without the drivers having to leave the truck, reducing safety hazards and traffic congestions.
