Disposal Center Pricing

Anyone may drop items off at our Disposal Centers for a fee. American Waste customers may also leave items that do not fit in totes or budget bags curbside for Driver Pickup. Prices listed below for Customer Drop Off and Driver Pickup are approximate. Disposal Center Station Attendants and, in the case of Driver Pickup, the Billing Department, have the final say on disposal pricing after review of item size and specification. Not all Disposal Centers accept every type of material—review center details here.
