Due to the high volume of garbage which is a hygiene issue, Garbage will be picked up first. Large items will be tagged and picked up at a later time. Yard waste will be picked up later. We have not been notified of any additional pickup dates. Thank you for your patience in this difficult time.
Please Contact Emterra Environmental USA with questions or complaints about service, 1-877-609-6753.
