Carroll County does not provide trash pickup.
Several private trash collection companies are available for hauling away trash.
REGULAR TRASH COLLECTION AND REGULAR RECYCLING IN BRIMFIELD
To help keep trash collection costs down, we have negotiated a group discount for the members of our community. Our rates include once-a-week regular trash collection and regular recycling. The trash collection company we use is Area Refuse. Pick-up day is every Friday morning, except for a few holiday weeks, when it is the previous Wednesday. Please be sure to place your trash at the curb on Thursday evening. Note: Recycle cans are available thru Area Refuse.
To participate in the plan and receive the group discount, you can sign up at the beginning of the new collection year or we will prorate the fees if you join once the year has started. All trash collection money is due by mid June for the collection year of July 01 through June 30. To join the trash program during the current year, contact the Brimfield HOA Treasurer.
WHAT GOES IN THE REGULAR RECYCLING:
It is important to understand the guidelines for putting items in the regular recycling cans being picked up by Area Refuse. In addition to what they have on their website, we have been instructed to not put anything plastic that looks like a bag since these jam up the recycling sorting machines. Bags containing dog feces need to go in the regular trash, not in with the recycling.
CHRISTMAS TREE PICK UP
Live Christmas tree pick up is included for anyone who participates in the group plan. Our neighborhood Christmas Tree pick-up date is typically scheduled for the second Wednesday in January and will be posted on our Events calendar.
YARD WASTE PICK UP
Regular recycling is included, but yard waste is not. Yard waste collection is available to our residents, upon request to Area Refuse, for an additional fee under $75.00 a year. For more information on how you can add yard waste pickups contact Area Refuse. Their website is www.arearefuseservice.com. Remember, they will only pick up yard waste in paper bags. For more information regarding yard waste, visit our Yard Waste page. Current year yard waste collection schedule.
