If pickups are missed, the containers will be picked up on the next assigned collection day. If container(s) are completely full and need to be dumped, the Mesquite Landfill will take your recycling container(s), as well as, you may use the recycling bins located in the parking lots of Smith’s Food & Drug, The Ranch Market, and Wal-Mart. If recycle container(s) are lost or stolen the property owner will be held responsible and will be billed $35.00 for each container on their next sanitation bill. Your container(s) need to be brought to the public access road in front of your residence before 6:00 a.m. on your service day. We understand 6:00 a.m. is early for some people so we highly suggest you place your container(s) out in front of your residence the night prior to your service day. If the container(s) are not out in front of your residence, they cannot be picked up. If the container(s) are not in place prior to 6:00 a.m., Virgin Valley Disposal will not return for pickup. Container(s) need to be placed in a clear area. The collection truck needs to be able to get within ten (10) feet of the container. The container should be placed away from cars, posts, fences, trees, etc. Those with two (2) containers need to place the containers three (3) feet apart from each other. If a container is inaccessible to a collection truck, it is the property owner or occupant’s responsibility to move the container to an accessible and approved location for service. Containers that are blocked by vehicles will not be serviced until the next assigned collection day. Container(s) need to be on the edge of the asphalt street. (NOT ON THE SIDEWALK OR AGAINST THE CURB). All recyclables should be placed inside the container with the lid closed. Use only the container(s) provided. The collection truck cannot handle other containers! Please do not set items next to the containers; extra (recyclable) items can be taken to the local drop-off locations at no extra charge. You will be able to put more recyclables in the container(s) if you smash your cans and unroll your newspapers. IMPORTANT!!! ARROW ON THE LID OF THE CONTAINER(S) MUST POINT TOWARDS THE STREET.
