Old Man Winter is certainly on the move, just ask any Arwood Waste team member in the North
For much of the country, the winter months bring a few changes to how portable toilets and portable sanitation units are serviced. This change is to keep them functioning properly in the colder temperatures. Not much is worse than a solid chunk of frozen waste when you need to use your portable toilet.
To prevent this experience, we may need to provide an additional climatization service to your units during the months of November through March. If this is required, you may notice a small additional Climate Fee on your bill during the affected months.
Arwood Waste and our partners are committed to providing you excellent service all year long! If you have any questions about the Climate Fee or if we can serve you any way, call us at (800) 477-0854.
Arwood Waste and our partners thank you for trusting us with your Roll Off Dumpster Rental, Portable Toilet Rental, Commercial Dumpster Rental, and Storage Rental all year long.

Those of us at National Garbage Man Day take this time to commemorate the history of Martin Luther King Jr., and the work that he did towards creating equality in America.
We appreciate each and every one of you, and wish freedom and peace be yours.
“Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.” -Martin Luther King Jr.

1. Enjoy the Weather
Some things are out of our control. When dangerous weather conditions cause interruptions in garbage service, know that we are doing our best and will be back on schedule as soon as we can. Take this time to enjoy the wonder of weather.
2. Spread the Warmth
Your garbage men and women are committed to what they do, even in ice cold circumstances. Surprise them with a hot chocolate, coffee, or even some warm gloves.
3. Stay Safe
Driving large vehicles in freezing conditions can be dangerous. Make sure children are away from the road when your garbage men and women are expected to be on your street. Ice can make it difficult to stop quickly if needed. Also, make sure your garbage is properly stored and ready for pick up so your drivers don’t have increased difficulty making your pickup.
From your friends at National Garbage Man Day, we ask that you enjoy the weather, keep warm, and stay safe this winter.
Your friends at Arwood Waste would like to wish you a Happy New Year!
It’s amazing what kind of impact just a few small changes can make. Use these tips to start off strong and make this a prosperous, rewarding, and productive new year.
#1 Simplify your environment.
Take a few minutes to walk through your home or business and ask yourself, “What can I get rid of here?” HELPFUL HINT: If it hasn’t been used in more than a year, it’s time to go. If you have a newer version, don’t keep the old one around ‘just in case’. Have a stack of half done projects? Make a plan to get them finished. Keeping them around only acts as a reminder of half-fulfilled efforts.
A purge of your physical environment brings clarity and space for vision in the atmosphere of your home or business.
#2 Share your abundance with others.
When simplifying last year’s stacks of stuff, consider what might be donated, recycled or re-purposed. Remember, what you have no need for may be just the thing someone else has been searching high and low to find.
Check out The Recycle Guide for places to drop off your re-purposed items or for more ideas on how to recycle.
#3 Plan space for growth.
You can’t add a new healthy habit, project, or vision to your plate without letting go of an old one. Set yourself up for success with your New Year’s resolutions. Start by evaluating what’s on your plate now. Decide what can be delegated, modified, or simply stopped. Then put that newly found time and energy into this year’s goals and habits.

As we go through this holiday season, we want to remember the impact that garbage workers have had on our history
Did you know this respected profession goes back to at least 3000 B.C.? Here are 10 interesting things from more recent history that you may not have known about your garbage workers:
- 1350 A.D. – The first garbage men got their jobs when England passed a law requiring front yards to be clean after nearly 25 million people died during an outbreak of the plague. These first garbage workers were called Rakers.
- 1388 A.D. – English Parliament banned the dumping of waste into ditches and public water ways.
- 1757 A.D. – Benjamin Franklin started the first street cleaning service.
- 1760 A.D. – The Industrial Revolution hit it’s stride and so did an increase in industrial waste production.
- 1785 A.D. – England passed the Public Health Act to guarantee public health and protection from sewage and industrial waste.
- 1920-1940’s A.D. – First modern garbage truck was developed. The Garwood Load Packer was the predecessor to almost all waste collection vehicles today.
- 1934 A.D. – The Supreme Court banned dumping waste into the oceans.
- 1937 A.D. – First Landfill opened in the United States in Fresno, California.
- 1940’s A.D. – The United States emerged from WWII as a world industrial super power and the average amount of waste produced increased by 67%. Good thing the waste management industry was ready to go into high gear.
- 1990’s A.D. – Present – Advances in technology led to new ways of managing waste including Reducing the need for, Reusing, and Recycling many items. These advances continue to produce cleaner cities and neighborhoods.

Holiday Waste Pickup Schedule
Arwood Waste wants to celebrate all the holidays with you too. This is why we created a Holiday Pick-up schedule so you can make arrangements and placement of your waste material while we spend time with our families. Businesses that currently receive collection may have different schedules and procedures than residential customers since business garbage is normally collected separately from residential garbage.
Call us toll free at 1-800-477-0854 today and ask us how we can save you time and money.
Collection service will be postponed by one day following these holidays:
- New Year’s Day – No Service on January 1st. One day delay. Example; Monday collection day will be serviced on Tuesday.
- Fourth of July – No Service on July 4th. One day delay. Wednesday collection day will be serviced on Thursday.
- Labor Day – No Service on the first Monday of September. One day delay. Monday collection day will be serviced on Tuesday.
- Thanksgiving Day – No Service on the fourth Thursday of November. One day delay. Thursday collection day will be serviced on Friday.
- Christmas Day – No Service on December 25th. One day delay. Example; Monday collection day will be serviced on Tuesday.
- Halloween Day – We will be providing service on October 31st. If the route is delayed and cannot be finished before dusk we will finish the route the next business day.
- National Garbage Man Day – We will be providing service on June 17th as scheduled. Please remember to throw up your hand with a simple smile and say “Thank You”.
Due to the one day postponement, the collection of containers is resumed as follows: If the holiday is on a Monday, then the Monday collection will occur on Tuesday, Tuesday collection will occur on Wednesday, and so on. If the holiday is on a Thursday, then the Thursday collection will occur on Friday and Friday collection will occur on Saturday for that week only. On all other holidays, normal collection of containers will occur. If a holiday falls on the weekend, then pickups will run on a normal schedule unless otherwise specified.
