Simple and transparent pricing

Guidance for separating of waste
You can throw a mix of all type of debris in one bag and we will price this as mixed waste. However if you have large quantities of waste, it will be both cost efficient and environmentally friendly to source separate the waste in different bags. By source separating the waste the recycling facility will reach a higher recycling rate.
You can safely throw a mix of all type of debris in one bag. This can be furniture, carpet, all types of home appliances, empty cans of paint, wood and all other type of waste. The recycling facility will then source seperate the waste on site. For mixed waste we achieve a recycling rate of up to 80%.
Do not throw: Hazardous waste, all current / battery, tire, food, liquid waste, heavy masses, plaster, bricks, dirt and concrete. These waste types are thrown in the bag an additional fee will be charged

Deviation and surcharges
We will at the time of pick up check that the content of the sack is according to the order. If the content is not according to the order, the dumpster bag will be priced as mixed waste, and you will be charged for the difference.
If the Yellowsack is placed in such a way that we can not pick up the sack, we will still charge the Transport fee.
Placement of the Yellowsack dumpster bag
We collect the Yellowsack with crane trucks equipped with an articulating knuckle boom, so the Yellowsack must be placed at a maximum of 17 feet from the road without obstacles.
We recommend you place your dumpster bags in the drive way or in a place where the pick up truck will have easy access.
