DBS Environmental (DBS) has created the Pick-Up-Program (PUP) to allow communities the ability to provide continuous collections of their household hazardous waste. Bins are exchanged at manned collection sites that will allow for a time-and-cost effective way to offer this service.
How it works
- Bins are dropped off at the transfer site
- These bins may be divided into 4 quadrants (cross bins) to hold the following:
- Bins designated for paint collections do not need to be divided
- Once the bins are full, they are transported by DBS Environmental to be processed (bulked) at our transfer site.
- No bulking is done at the collection site
Set up Service

- DBS supplies a training program to personnel at the transfer site. This training includes identification and separation of household hazardous waste

- DBS offers a “HELP LINE” that is manned 24 hours, 7 days a week to assist site personnel
