Tips & Hints

Curious about how to save some extra money or have some questions? Check out the following helpful tips from Buckingham Companies:


1) In order to avoid extra charges pile that extra bag or two on top of the container rather than on the ground.


2) Please place trash, recycling and compost carts at least 3 feet apart from each other. This allows the truck lift to grab each container separately without spillage.


3) Trash must be at the curb by 7 a.m. – This will prevent you from being missed on your collection day!


4) Why can’t you use plastic bags for your yard waste and compost?
    -The short answer is because those bags end up in the landfill and will not decompose for over 100 years. (They also tear easily and are harder to handle when fully loaded)


5) If you get your trash out late on your pick-up day. Buckingham will always offer to take double the next pickup day. If the cart if full, place extra bags outside or on top of the container for no additional charge.


6) The best way to get rid of a smelly cart is to rinse it out with a hose.
    Soap, bleach, or other cleaning agents can be used.

    I wanted to make a positive comment concerning one of your driver this morning. I had neglected to place the containers at the curb. I heard the truck out front. I ran out as he is taking our containers out to the curb, He said no problem. I feel he went the extra mile. We need more folks like him.

    Sincere thanks to my drivers, who is honest, friendly, dependable and provided exceptional customer service in arranging to have our garbage picked up yesterday when my neighbor and I misunderstood the 4th of July holiday schedule. Glad he takes pride in his work- Person Responsibility in Delivering Excellence!

    Tonya and the People at Buckingham:
    I just wanted to thank you for the great work you did today. I had called earlier saying that I didn't get all of my yard compost out by the time it got picked up. And you guys were able to swing back and pick it up within an hour. I just wanted to let you guys know this showed great customer service and was very appreciated. This is why I like to do business with a local company. Keep up the good work and I will be sure to let my neighbors and friends know about the great service.

    -Joey, Prior Lake

    Just a note to let you know the guy that picks up my garbage is a great guy always a smile his face, always pleasant, on hot days when I am around I give him water and cold days, coffee. You should be very proud to have him as a employee.

    -Jim, Burnsville
