HQ Dumpsters and Recycling is a full service refuse and recycling company that offers weekly curbside trash and recycling service to residents of Southington, Meriden, and Wallingford. Contact us for more information about what we do, pricing, current offers and more.

We offer three different size trash & recycling carts – 35, 68 and 96 gallons. All residential customers receive two carts of their choice:

  • one for household trash
    (dark green and labeled Trash Only on top)
  • one for single stream recycling
    (blue and labeled Recyclables Only on top).

We also offer bulk pickups for items too large to be placed in the carts. Call us for details.

Residential Tote Liners

HQ offers liners for your residential trash can. Our liners fill the entire tote and protect the inside from leaky bags and unpleasant smells. The liners are dumped every week with your trash, so you’ll always have a clean tote!

Each box comes with a year supply for $48.76 and can be purchased at our office. Visit us at 897 South Main Street, Plantsville.

Roll Off Services

10 – 40 Yard Containers for construction, remodeling, demolition, or spring cleaning.

Here are some residential trash and recycling guidelines, and you can also visit our FAQ page where some additional questions will be answered.

Residential Trash & Recycling Guidelines

  • Put all trash and recycling carts out the night before, at least 2 feet from other carts or any other objects.
  • Place any additional trash bags that do not fit in the carts on the side of the cart. We will dispose of them for an additional charge per bag.
  • Make sure all garbage is put in bags. This will prevent loose trash from falling onto the ground when we empty the contents of the carts into our vehicles.
  • Hazardous materials, construction materials, yard waste, paint, furniture and some other items are NOT PERMITTED in trash carts. To dispose of these items please call for a bulk item pickup or for information on renting a dumpster.
  • Please note that HQ Dumpsters & Recycling does not handle the disposal of hazardous materials of any kind.
