Special ServicesIf you want something picked up that is not normally picked up, call GFL Environmental at 844-464-3587. They will give you a price on disposal. You may also call and arrange for disposal at a landfill yourself.
Garage / Basement Clean-Out
If you have collected items over the years and are interested in cleaning them out, instead of putting them out all at once, help the workers on the truck and put out some of the junk neatly each week for several weeks.
