3-Yard Container 

Three Cubic Yard containers (or dumpsters) are used by most of our business customers and by a few of our residential customers living in multi-family dwellings.

Businesses and multi-family dwellings pay a non-refundable lease charge of $80.00 per year for containers (cost subject to change).  This charge covers the cost of container maintenance, and must be paid before the container will be delivered.  If you need to lease a Three Cubic Yard Container for your business, apartment complex, or multi-family dwelling, stop by the Richmond Sanitary District at 2380 Liberty Avenue to sign an agreement and we will then visit the location and determine the best location for the container to be placed.

Three Cubic Yard Containers are for regular household trash and office paper trash only.  Please do not use these containers to dispose of tires, furniture, yard waste and construction materials (roofing, lumber, etc.), rocks, carpet, doors, or dirt.  If you have furniture or yard waste to dispose of call our main office at 765-983-7450 and we will schedule a  Special Pick-up.  A reminder, special pick-ups are for residents only, not businesses. Richmond Sanitary District receives numerous complaints every year about trash that has been dumped next to these containers.  This not only creates a trash mess, but the trash or bulky items my also block passage through an alley.  A simple phone call before setting items out to be picked up, will alleviate these problems.

Roll-Off Containers

Richmond Sanitary District leases large 14 cubic yard trash containers called "Roll-Offs" to our customers for general household trash or yard waste and brush.  Roll-off containers are leased to residential customers for a charge of $10.00 (cost subject to change) for approximately 2 days.  The containers may also be leased by existing businesses (for yard waste and brush only ), to be set at the business site, for the same fee.  NO CONSTRUCTION OR DEMOLITION MATERIALS MAY BE PLACED IN OUR CONTAINERS.  This includes such items as roofing concrete, glass, wood, pipe, plaster or drywall, etc.  Payment must be made prior to scheduling the roll-off container.  Payment can be made at our main office at 2380 Liberty Avenue or by phone with a Visa or Mastercard.

All customers leasing a roll-off container will be asked to sign a Release of Liability form.  If the form is not signed by the property owners, the container will not b set on private property.  If making payment for the roll-off container over the hone, the container will not be set on private property.  

These containers are leased to help you dispose of general household trash OR yard waste.  The two types of material can not be mixed.  You are responsible for all materials placed in the roll-off container.  If any construction/demolition materials are placed in the roll-off, you will be contacted to remove the material.  Failure to comply may result in loss of leasing privileges and a charge for removing material from the container, included the disposal cost.

Roll-Off containers should be filled only to the top.  Do NOT over fill the container.  They have to be covered before they can be hauled to the landfill.  The roll-off containers have stickers on the sides to show you how much you can put into the roll-off.  If they are too full, the tap won't fit and some of the items may have to be removed from the container.

Roll-off containers are usually booked two weeks in advance and not available in January, around certain holidays, or during inclement weather.
