Residents may dispose of their refuse by attaching a prepaid garbage sticker to each can or bag that is placed curbside. Stickers are available for purchase at Wisted’s Supermarket or directly from MDC Environmental Services.
Please notify our office in advance if you require collection of any bulk items. There is an additional charge for this service. A bulk item is any item which is too large to fit into the 95 gallon tote or your garbage cans. Examples include, but are not limited to, sofas, chairs, tables, mattress, boxspring, small appliances. Any large appliances, especially ones that contain CFC and HCFC refrigerant gas, PCB containing capacitors, mercury switches or other hazardous components are not included and must be removed by a separate service.
Please contact our office for referrals for such appliances. Please contact our office 24 hours prior to your pickup to arrange for a special pickup for any refuse in excess of your service level per week. There is an extra charge for this service. If you require an estimate, service will be provided within one week after the estimate is given.
