Christmas Route Schedule
The only interruption in service for our routes is Christmas Day. There is no pick up for garbage or recycling on Christmas Day.
If Christmas falls on a weekday, the days following it are picked up one day later.
In other words, if Christmas falls on a Tuesday, Monday customers are picked up on their normal scheduled day of Monday, but Tuesday customers are picked up on Wednesday, Wednesday customers are picked up on Thursday, and so on until Friday customers are picked up on Saturday.

Drop Box Liability Release Form
Dear Drop Box Customer,
Please review and confirm by your signature below that you have read and understand the requirements and restrictions for drop box use.
NLSS offers the following Drop Box Sizes in cubic yards: 10, 20, 30, and 40.
The Drop Box needs to be emptied at least once every 7 days. On the 8th day a $20/day demurrage will be added.
The boxes can be used for disposal of bulky materials, light demolition, tree trimming, or other general cleanup projects.
If you are disposing of dirt, rock, sod, concrete or any other heavy dense material, a 10 cubic yard drop box is the only size we can allow.
If you are disposing of composite (3 tab, asphalt shingle) roofing material, then a 20 cubic yard drop box is the largest size we can allow.
Unacceptable items in any drop box include but may not be limited to the following:
infectious waste, medical waste, or radioactive waste as defined by applicable by state, federal, or local laws or regulations
The following items banned from Landfills may be placed in a drop box, but NLSS needs to be informed:
Large Appliances (refrigerators, stoves, heaters) - Place at front of box.
Tires - Place at back of box.
Overweight or overfilled boxes can be subject to additional fees and may require removal of materials by the customer before the box can be hauled.
As a drop box customer you will be responsible for all fees incurred including delivery, haul, disposal and may include additional fees such as:
rent, damage to box, testing, clean up, abatement of unacceptable items, etc....
All Construction and Demolition debris must be accompanied with documentation proving the load does not contain asbestos-containing material - a Construction and Demolition Waste Acceptance Form. If any material in the box could be considered suspect for Asbestos-Containing Material (ACM), including but not limited to flooring, sheetrock, duct work, roofing material, plaster, popcorn ceiling, or anything else that looks like it came from a remodel or demolition, the hauler and/or disposal site may refuse the box until the customer can provide documentation proving the load does not contain ACM. If a box is picked up and undeclared, suspect, ACM is discovered at the transfer station, the customer will be charged for all cleanup costs. Cleanup could range in the thousands of dollars.
