Go Green:

As of July 2008, Vierkant Disposal has offered organics* recycling to all of our customers. We provide 60 Gallon carts to customers upon request for the new Go GREEN program. As always bags (paper and compostable plastic), tarps (maximum 6' x 6' and 50 lbs; leaves only) and cans may also be used for your yard waste. However paper and compostable plastic bags are preferred. All yard waste and organics must be placed on the curb by 7:00am on your pickup day.

Customers may tailor the yard waste and organics program to meet their needs. The program is only available for customer's with weekly garbage service. You have the option to do one of the following programs:
