Carroll County does not provide trash pickup.
Several private trash collection companies are available for hauling away trash.
REGULAR TRASH COLLECTION AND REGULAR RECYCLING IN BRIMFIELD
To help keep trash collection costs down, we have negotiated a group discount for the members of our community. Our rates include once a week regular trash collection and regular recycling. The trash collection company we use is Area Refuse. Pick up day is every Friday morning, except for a few holiday weeks, when it is the previous Wednesday. Please be sure to place your trash at the curb on Thursday evening. Note: Recycle cans are available thru Area Refuse.
CHRISTMAS TREE PICK UP:
Live Christmas tree pick up is included for anyone who participates in the group plan. Our neighborhood Christmas Tree pick up date is typically scheduled for sometime in mid-January and will be posted on our Events calendar.
YARD WASTE PICK UP:
Regular recycling is included, but yard waste is not. Yard waste collection is available to our residents, upon request to Area Refuse, for an additional fee under $50.00 a year. For more information on how you can add yard waste pickups contact Area Refuse. Their website is www.arearefuseservice.com. Remember, they will only pick up yard waste in paper bags. For more information regarding yard waste, visit our Yard Waste Page.

Free Mulch is no longer available from the Carroll County Landfill. The Carroll County landfill accepts things like computers, electronics, tires, car batteries, portable tv sets, yard waste, and much more.
