TAHOE TRUCKEE SIERRA DISPOSAL COMPANY (TTSD)
CUSTOMERS SECURING ORDERS AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING DEBRIS BOX CONTAINER TERMS & CONDITONS/GUIDELINES
SCHEDULING, TIME LIMITS, AND RENTAL CHARGES
TTSD CANNOT GUARANTEE SERVICE TIMES. Debris boxes (bins, dumpsters) deliveries and removals are scheduled for weekdays, for term limits of 5 days plus delivery during the day before and removal during the day after. Drivers may arrive to deliver as late as 6pm and as early as 6am for removal. Periods shorter than 5 days may be available, subject to availability and advance scheduling by the customer. Longer periods must also be scheduled in advance by the customer, subject to availability and waste content as well as additional per day rental charges after the initial period. Daily rental charges vary, depending on season and availability. TTSD reserves the right to remove debris boxes if the rental exceeds one month. Applicable charges apply though the final service date.
All orders are on a first-come, first-serve basis. All deliveries must be prepaid. TTSD suggests orders be called in at least one business day in advance to assure better likelihood of delivery. Order earlier for weekends and holidays. Attempts for same-day orders must be made as early as possible. TTSD office is located at 645 West Lake Blvd, Suite 5, Tahoe City. Hours: 8am to 4:30pm M-F.
DEBRIS BOX PLACEMENT
Placement locations must be on a safe and level surface with no immediate overhead wires. Location must be clearly removed from public easements and county maintained roads. Persons ordering service must have the authority to place orders, including the property owner approval to use the designated site.
Customers are responsible for damaged and/or overloaded debris boxes. Prior to service, a clear and safe path must be available for truck and debris box (e.g. NO vehicles, equipment, tools, or excess debris including snow and ice). Large debris box service requires the following minimum clearances: 18’ height, 12’ width, 80’ maneuvering length. TTSD reserves right to refuse delivery if, in its discretion, placement location is unsafe or unsuitable. TTSD is not responsible for damage to surfaces on which the debris box is placed or over which the TTSD truck must travel. Customers who wish to protect surfaces must do so in advance on their own accord. Customers should not move debris boxes as the attempts to do so may result in damages to the box and/or the site surface.

ALL DEBRIS BOXES MUST BE SAFE TO LEGALLY HAUL ACCORDING TO THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION RULES AND REGULATIONS. DEBRIS BOXES MUST NOT BE OVERLOADED BY WEIGHT AND/OR VOLUME. DEBRIS IN ALL BOXES MUST NOT EXCEED THE DIMENSIONS OF THE BIN, INCLUDING THE TOP RIM OF THE BOX (“water-level” full only). NO DIRT OR ROCKS ALLOWED IN BINS. Other heavy items of special concern include sheetrock, composition, sod, bricks, tile, asphalt. Heavy materials must be evenly distributed in the bottom of the box. If a box is deemed unsafe to haul, it will not be serviced until excess material is removed by the customer. Overweight fees will be applied If bin is determined to be overweight when scaled.
All debris boxes are billed a haul fee plus disposal costs. Overweight bins are subject to additional charges and/or refusal of service until properly loaded by the customer.
