For Those Who Do Not Need Weekly Garbage Service

On Call Garbage Service

We recognize that not everyone needs weekly garbage pickup. So, we’ve created an “on call” garbage pick-up service. With our program, just pick up the phone and give us a call to schedule your pick-up, pay the fee, place your cart at the curb, and we’ll schedule your pick-up on our next route servicing your area of the county. – You will need a compatible trash cart to use with this service. If interested, just give us a call for further details and rates.

Why Choose Us?

GPS Routing

Our drivers utilize a GPS enabled routing system to ensure that all customers are serviced. Our dispatchers are able to monitor driver progression and can provide you with real time data regarding your service.

Service Notifications

Receive emailed reminders to put cart out for service. Then receive a notification when our service has been completed and you can retrieve your cart. (These may be turned off if unwanted)

Reliable Service

Quality, dependable service is what our team remains focused on to bring you the most satisfied customer experience.

No Auto-Dump Trucks

We choose to handle carts individually. This allows for better care for the cart and allows us to place your cart neatly out of the road, out of your driveway and out of the way of your mail carrier.

Frequently Asked Questions

Regular household trash is fine. Items such as batteries, tires, oil, liquid paint, electronics or combustible materials deemed hazardous, such as propane tanks or acids are not allowed.

No, you may use any cart that is compatible with our truck. We will need to place a sticker on your cart of our logo to enable our drivers to better locate your cart for service.

We recommend that you place the container for pickup before 5am on your scheduled service day. Most people will set theirs out on the night before service.

We do prefer that our customers place their trash in bags that are securely closed.

We do not accept items outside of the container. If you have an extra container, we will dump that container for for an additional $5 per occurrence. You can arrange this by calling our office.

In most cases, if your normal pickup day falls on a holiday, we will make your pickup on the next following business day.

We will communicate via email our plans for your holiday pickup.

We've been with Trash Control for over two years now and their service has been absolutely fantastic! They have never missed a single scheduled pick-up day and when their schedule changes because of a holiday then you get an e-mail telling you when they'll arrive. You get an e-mail early on every pick-up day reminding you to roll your container out and another telling you when your service is complete. If you're too busy to check your e-mail just look at your container; if it's turned sideways then it's been picked-up. Online payment is easy and painless. Their employees are actually friendly and engaging. Quite a change from our last provider who was more expensive and has been as late as a week picking up our trash.

Very professional, best price around, GPS service for customers to see the times of arrival for pick-up, email notifications to remind you to push your cart out for pick-up and also a notification that the service was completed!! Bulk junk removal (mattress, furniture, etc....), recycling ♻️ availability as well. Just an over all outstanding company that will take such great care of all residential and business (construction) related needs. When you pass homes that are being built or other construction needs you'll notice there are more red Total Trash Control dumpers being used than any other business around. Thats what caught my eye and I decided to try them out for my personal residence. I wouldn't change

This trash control service is amazing. I've tried them all in the ten years I've lived here and NO ONE comes close to Trash Control Residential. Many people have mentioned great parts about their service here - but one thing I didn't see mentioned was the way Trash Control Residential turns the cans sideways after pickup - so you can immediately tell just by looking if they've been there. That's great for people like me who are set-back from the road. Funny thing is - they've never been late so they probably don't need to turn the cans. I could set my watch by them & know that they've been there by the same time every week. THANK YOU!

We live in rural Waxhaw NC. After several bad experiences with previous companies we found Trash Control. The difference in service has been night and day from past companies! They have never missed our pickup. They actually communicate with us through emails. If there are changes and holiday schedule changes that may come up we are notified in advance. Very professional company and well managed! We are extremely pleased with our service! Keep up the good work. Reward your employees that make you look good!

Trash Control has by far been the best company to have cover our garbage pickup. I ordered service over a year ago at 8am and my new trashcan was delivered the same day by 10am. They have never been late, never missed a pickup, and send you reminders as well as confirmation that your can was emptied. We are moving soon and it breaks my heart that we will have to end our service until our new home is built. Thank you for being the best and most affordable in Union County.

Trash Control is a great family business. The owner and employees give fantastic customer service. Their price is competitive. Their services are far above and beyond any of the private trash service providers in Union County. They show up every single week on time every time, they don’t throw cans on the ground or leave in the middle of your driveway, they never leave scraps behind in the ground. 6 out of 5 stars
