Trash & Recycling Collection
AAA will provide removal of trash and recyclables on all holidays that fall on a regularly scheduled pickup day, with the exception of THANKSGIVING DAY, CHRISTMAS DAY and NEW YEAR’S DAY (or when the disposal facilities close unexpectedly).  When a designated pickup day falls on one of these holidays, uncollected trash or recyclables will be removed on the next regularly scheduled pickup day for that debris.  Watch the website home page for details on holiday schedules. All schedules will be posted on the website at least 2 weeks prior to the holiday.


Recycle and Trash Cart Lease Program

AAA is offering CountrySide residents the opportunity to LEASE larger wheeled-covered trash and/or recycling carts for the very reasonable price of $12 per year, per container. While the containers will still remain the property of AAA, one great benefit of leasing the carts is that if they are damaged for any reason, AAA will replace the carts at no extra charge. We hope that residents will be able to make use of this special offer!

If you are interested in leasing one or more of these carts, please contact the AAA Customer Service Center at to make arrangements for delivery and to set up the billing for your account. 

Optional Sizes:

Trash – Large 96 gallon cart or Small 64 gallon cart

Recycling – Large 64 gallon or Small 35 gallon cart

Yard Waste Collection:

Yard Waste is considered a by-product of regular yard maintenance and not the debris as a result of landscaping renovation.  All homes will have ONE weekly collection of yard waste on their first collection day of the week (Monday or Tuesday).  Recycling of yard debris is mandatory from March 1 through December 24. January and February, please place yard debris out with your household trash.  Composting, chipping, and mulching are great ways to recycle your yard waste. 


All yard debris to be collected must be prepared accordingly and placed at the curb for collection:

  • Brush and limbs must be cut into 4-foot lengths and bundled (arm-full size) with rope or twine and should not exceed 50 pounds.
  • Grass clippings, leaves, and twigs can be placed in a container marked "yard waste", paper bags, or clear plastic bags (do not use black trash bags for yard waste). 
  • Tree stumps and tree limbs that are larger than 6 inches in diameter and 4 feet in length will not be collected.
  • All unbundled brush will be considered a special pick up.  Please E-mail our Customer Service Center to put in a request to have a Residential Supervisor survey the material for a quote. This survey and removal of the debris will be billed directly to you.
