Our Carts

Our wheeled carts are 96 gallons for residential garbage and 64 gallons for recyclables. These carts are on loan to our customers free of charge.  However, carts must be returned to American Waste Disposal at the end of your service. If you damage or lose the cart there will be a replacement charge of $60.00. If a wheel cracks or breaks, please contact us and we will happily replace or repair it for you.  All carts need to be placed at the curb the night before or by 6:00am on your pickup day(s).  Customers are required to use our provided carts and up to 2 additional bags placed next to the cart. To limit liability of damaging other cans and worker injuries, we will only pick up waste in our carts.


Cart Placement

American Waste Disposal will drop off your cart in the best possible place for our team to pickup your trash and recycling bins.  Place the cart with the wheels AWAY from the street. Carts should be placed no more than 2 ft. from the curb, and 3 ft. or more from any objects (mailbox, trees, signs, cars).   



There is a $10.00 final cart removal fee. Please call our office to schedule your final pick up and removal of the cart(s).



 We observe New Year’s Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day. To ensure that everyone gets serviced during a holiday week, we push all pickups following the actual Holiday back one day, allowing those whose pickup fell on the holiday to be picked up the following day.


 All of our residential customers we have multiple options for billing.  American Waste Disposal will have your bill in the mail on the first business day of each month.  All bills are to be paid by the 15th day of the month to ensure no interruptions in your service.  To pay your bill you can set up Autopay, Pay online using our website,  Pay by phone, or by mailing a check or cash to our PO Box - 10801 Starkey RD #104-340 Seminole, FL 33777


 American Waste Disposal offers bulk pickups only on your residential garbage pickup day. Multiple large items will not be picked up unless you call our office in advance. Example: large multiple section couches, multiple dressers or bed sets. 1 single dresser: $10.00, 1 box spring or mattress : $10.00, 1 tv stand/table : $10.00, Chairs : $5.00 each.
