What if we need more boxes?

We will gladly provide you with as many boxes as you will need to put all of your waste.

What if we do not have any waste?

We provide a regular service, therefore, if you have no waste you will be charged a trip charge (equal to one box).

No, We cannot accept any aerosol cans. These cans may explode during the destruction process and damage equipment. Please do not put any aerosol cans into your biohazard containers.

If possible.
