Q:  How do I get started?

A:  Call us at 1 (615) 451-2805.

Q:  What type of container can I use?

A:  Any container 64 gallons and less.  Or your favorite bin.

Q:  Do you accept credit or debit cards or pay pal?

A:  No.  To maintain our low rates you may pay through your online banking.  Place Gordy’s Recycling Service and our address as a payee with your account and type in your name and address in the reference section.  The bank will send it to us.

We accept personal checks, cash, and  money orders.

Q:  When are my payments due?

A:  All payments are due by the 10th.  Failure to receive a bill does not exempt you from the payment due.

Q:  Why did you leave the Styrofoam in my bin?  It has an emblem and a number on it.

A:  The number specifies the type of Styrofoam and not plastic.  You may take the clean meat trays to Publix or the packaging peanuts to The UPS Store or to Pony Express.

Q:  Why do you leave the bagged recycling in my can?

A:  The Recycling Facility does not allow any trash bags.

Q:  Do you take glass?

A:   No, the Recycling Center does not accept glass.

Q:  Why do I have to empty and rinse my plastic milk jugs or orange container or any other containers?

A:  They must be emptied and rinsed because this is recycling and not trash.  It sours and leaves your recycling bins smelling.  They will be left outside the recycling bin.

Q:  All of my recycling will not fit in my bin?

A:  Place in another container or bin, not too large.  No plastic bags.

Q:  Why did you leave the cardboard boxes?

A:  All cardboard has to be broken down to lay flat.  If the boxes are large like furniture, tool, exercise, or grill boxes, cut them into smaller pieces.  Do not fold.

Q:  I did not receive a bill and why is there a late fee?

A:  Failure to receive an invoice or statement does not exempt you from the payment that is owed.
