Customer and Contractor Rights and Responsibilities
General Program Information & Responsibilities


Residents choosing to participate in the Town of Chapin’s Franchise Waste Collection Service will receive curbside collection of household garbage on a weekly basis and recyclables every other week. For an additional fee, limited backyard pickup of household garbage and recyclables is available.

The service provider will mail or e-mail billing statements directly to the customer no later than the 15th calendar day of the last month prior to the start of a new quarter (September, December, March, June) and payments are due before the 16th calendar day of the first month of each quarter (October, January, April, July). Providers are not responsible for lost or misplaced billing statements, and customers are expected to understand that payment is necessary for continued service. Payment is due to the service provider at the beginning of each quarter. It is recommended that customers not make payments that extend beyond the quarterly billing cycle. If a customer fails to pay for collection service, or does not comply with the customer responsibilities as specified in the County’s Franchise Agreement, the contractor will not be required to provide collection service to that customer. If service is terminated for any reason, the contractor’s roll- carts may be picked up. Resumption of discontinued service may require a re-instatement fee of $35.00.

Recyclable items are collected every other week. 95 Gallon “roll-carts” are provided by the service provider. Recycled items may be loose and co-mingled in the roll-cart. Please do not place plastic bags full of recyclables in the roll-cart. Recyclable items cannot be co-mingled with household garbage or yard trash. The following items may be recycled:

  • Plastics #1 through #7
  • Newspapers & inserts
  • Magazines
  • Chipboard
  • Office paper
  • Junk mail
  • Cardboard
  • Aluminum
  • Clean metal cans
  • Clean glass bottles and jars – no broken glass, no mirrors, no plate glass, no dishes or china).
  • Household garbage and recyclable items will be picked up separately. These items should be picked up between 6:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. on their scheduled collection day.

    Items NOT accepted by your collection service provider include: Electronics (Specifically computers, TV’s, monitors and printers), Industrial and commercial waste, hazardous materials, medical waste, construction materials (other than incidental materials generated from normal household upkeep by the occupant), dirt, rocks, bricks, concrete blocks, refuse from commercial tree cutters and other commercial activity, debris exceeding four inches in diameter or four feet in length, dead animals, tires, batteries, vehicle parts, used oil, oil filters, liquid paint and other products considered to be petroleum, oil or lubricant related. Items not collectable by your service provider may be accepted at one of the County Collection and Recycling Centers or the County Landfill.

    For back yard service, fence gate(s) must be unlocked and pets must be secured by a leash or other appropriate fencing separating them from the container(s). Containers must be easily visible and readily accessible for collection.

    Commercial businesses or individuals providing any paid service at a residence are responsible for the storage, collection and disposal of waste generated by their business activities.

    No collections will be made on New Year’s Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day. Collections normally scheduled for these holidays will occur on the day after the holiday, and collections on each successive day during that week will occur on the day after the usual collection day.

    Set aside one (1) week each month during which household furnishings, appliances, and other large items, if placed at the curbside by the customer, shall be removed by the Contractor. The Contractor and the customer shall enter into a separate agreement for this service and the fee shall be in addition to normal collection costs.

    Return collection roll-carts to the area from which they were collected. Roll-carts will be placed upright with attached lids open. Gates used for access to back yard pickups will be left as they were found.
