Other Important Information

Do not place carts near cars, poles or other stationary objects as the automatic arm on the truck will not be able to pick up the cart and your trash and/or recycle will not be emptied.

It is your responsibility to remove the trash and recycle carts from the edge of the street after they are emptied.

If your pickup is missed, call ABLE DISPOSAL at (219) 929-1150.
