Reno Disposal Co. Offers Service Tips for Customers’
Frequently Asked Waste, Recycling Questions


RENO, February, 04, 2006 – Although trash day is a weekly occurrence for all Reno residents, Waste Management of Nevada, knows there are some questions that customers frequently ask and helpful information they like to have at their fingertips.

“We serve approximately 128,000 residents each week in the Reno area, providing comprehensive waste and recycling service,” said Michael Genera of Waste Managements Community and Municipal Relations.  “We enjoy working in partnership with the community, and hope that by sharing our list of ‘frequently asked questions,’ we can help our customers better utilize our wide array of services.” 

Among the top questions addressed by customer service (and their answers):

By what time do I need to have my trash cart out? All containers must be curbside on your scheduled service day by 7:00 a.m.  We remind customers that for safety purposes, our drivers will only pick up on the right/passenger side of the street at one time.

Are there service delays for holidays? We operate our residential routes Monday through Friday and work all holidays, including Christmas.  Our customer service center is closed on the following days: New Year’s Day, President’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Nevada Day, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Should I put my cart out in poor weather, such as when it’s snowing? We work during inclement weather, however, in order to service your container we need to have access to it.  Please help us provide you with timely service by keeping the cart and its surrounding area clear of snow.

What do I do if all of my trash won’t fit in my cart? If you have Waste Management’s green plastic 96-gallon container, you are allowed to put up to seven extra 32-gallon bags of trash out on your normal service day.

What should I do with bulky items or appliances that I want to dispose of?  The Lockwood Landfill, located in Lockwood, off of I-80 at the Mustang exit 23, accepts one bulky item, such as mattresses and sofas, per household for free at any time during normal business hours, (7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., seven days a week). The landfill also accepts recyclable items for free, including white metals such as washers and dryers and other metal appliances that do not contain chlorofluorocarbon (CFC).  One refrigerator per household may be disposed of for free, however please note that there is a $26.00 charge for CFC removal for commercial customers or for disposal by non-Washoe County residents.  Residents should keep in mind that the landfill and transfer stations charge by the rated capacity of a vehicle, so you are always welcome – and encouraged – to bring a full load.

What do I do with computer monitors or televisions that I need to throw out? The Lockwood Landfill/Transfer Stations will take one computer monitor or television per residential customer at normal trash rates.   

 

How do I safely dispose of old car batteries, used motor oil or antifreeze?  Residents may bring these items to the Lockwood Landfill or Reno/Stead transfer stations.  The Lockwood Landfill accepts for free the following from each residential customer: up to two automotive batteries; up to 10 quarts of used, uncontaminated motor oil; and up to three gallons of antifreeze.  The transfer stations accept for free the following from each residential customer: up to two automotive batteries; up to five quarts of used, uncontaminated motor oil; and up to two gallons of antifreeze. Residents are urged to use proper containers when transporting any of these items.

How do I safely dispose of house paint? Water-based house paint is considered hazardous material when wet, but can be put into your normal garbage cart if the paint container lids are taken off and the paint is dried out, or if you can solidify the material with dirt or kitty litter.

For answers to questions not answered here, customers may contact Waste Management customer service at 775-329-8822, from 08:00am to 05:00pm, Monday Through Friday.
