Multifamily properties with a dumpster(s) receive one (1) pickup per week for every 30 units. To determine the # of pickups, take the total number of units and divide by 30, round up if .5 or greater, round down if less than .5. For example, a 125-unit multifamily community divided by 30= 4.17= four (4) authorized collections the City will provide on the multifamily contract. (Note: size of dumpster does not dictate frequency of collection, i.e. a 4-yard dumpster will not be picked up twice as often as an 8-yard dumpster). Multifamily properties with a compactor receive haul(s) per week determined by a formula based on the number of units and compactor size. The formula is based upon the compaction ratio of a trash compactor of 3 to 1. This means that one 8-yd compactor can hold three times as much refuse as a regular 8-yard dumpster. Please contact the Solid Waste Services' multifamily administrator at
firstname.lastname@example.org to determine number of eligible hauls for your community. A multifamily property may elect to have additional collections beyond the number the City provides. Your community may contract with any vendor of choice for the additional pickups.
