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.
- Make sure all garbage is put in tied 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 bulky 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.

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 $48.50 and can be purchased at our office. Visit us at 897 South Main Street, Plantsville.
