Drop boxes and containers can be placed on the street or in your parking lot. All containers must be placed on a solid surface (such as pavement or gravel); we will not place drop boxes or containers in dirt or grass. Once the container is placed by a Pride driver, do not move it.
When ordering the drop box or container, please specify what you will be putting in it, as your materials will determine the price of disposal. Do not overload your drop box or container. Contents must be “water level” with the top for safe transport.
