According to these codes, (BLMC 8.04, MMC 13.12.010, OMC 5.2.1B, PMC 6.12.030, SMC 13.12.030) residents must subscribe to at least the minimum service level of one 10-gallon garbage can serviced weekly.

Garbage Service

DM Disposal provides a wheeled garbage cart for your use. Garbage carts are the property of DM Disposal and must remain at the residence where they are assigned. We offer a variety of service levels to meet your needs. The most common service is our one 35-gallon cart serviced weekly. If you need more than one 35-gallon cart serviced weekly, we offer different rates and sizes up to a 95-gallon cart. For those with small households who do a great job recycling, we also offer a 10-gallon cart or 20-gallon cart service. Please remember to choose the appropriate sized cart for your desired service level. Please consider the amount of waste you produce in choosing your garbage cart size. Each customer is allowed 1 change per 12-months to their garbage cart size for free. Additional changes within 12-months will be assessed a redelivery fee. To help us provide the best service possible, please always set your items out by 7am the morning of pick up or the night before and within 5 feet of the curb or sidewalk.

Please remember to have your can at its service location no later than 7 am on your service day.
