Drop Box Services

Pride has Drop Boxes to serve your needs. You can schedule on-going service or one-time use for special projects.

Important information regarding construction, demolition, and remodeling debris:

  • If you are putting any of the following materials in the drop box, you must obtain an asbestos survey before ordering your box:
  • Ceiling and walls:  acoustic tiles, plaster, “popcorn” texture
  • Flooring: vinyl tiles (9” x 9”, 12” x 12”) and sheet vinyl
  • Insulation/fireproofing: spray-applied, vermiculite, monokote, thermal system insulation (TSI), block, boiler and spray-applied sink undercoating
  • Exterior walls: cement siding shingles (Transite/CAB)
  • Heating: White TSI paper that is complete wrap or seam tape on ducting, air-duct cement and insulation
  • Fire doors, fire/kiln brick and fireproofing
  • Surface materials for interior wall and ceiling systems: textured surfacing material that covers the entire surface of the wall and/or ceiling system such as trowel-applied and skim or brown coats
  • Stucco
  • Gaskets: furnace, mechanical (not automotive), boiler, and wood stove
  • Roofing materials: composition roofing, tar paper, felt, silver/white roofing paint, Nicolite paper (white paper used under cedar shingles and parapet metal siding)
  • Various compounds: window glazing, adhesives, caulks, patching, mastics, and vapor barrier products (plastic or polyethylene synthetic materials such as “Tyvek” are exempt from testing)
  • Electrical: switch gear, circuit boxes and fuse panels from industrial applications and some residential applications; wiring with cloth insulation (Wiring commonly referred to as Romex is exempt)

Find a list of labs that perform this testing.

  • Drop Box Placement
  • Drop boxes can be placed on the street or in your driveway. If you would like the box to be placed in your driveway you will need to sign a waiver. Drop Boxes must be placed on a solid surface (ex: pavement or gravel), we do not place drop boxes in dirt or grass.
  • Once the box is placed by the Pride driver, do not move it.
  • Contents
  • Please specify what you will be putting in the box as there may be different charges depending on what the material is (ex: Garbage vs. Recycling).
  • Do not overload the drop box. Contents must be "water level" with the top. We have automated tarps on the trucks and nothing can be over the top of the box.
  • Dirt, rock, sod, gravel and concrete can only be hauled in a 10-yard drop box. All boxes can be filled no further than the sides of the box. The material must be level with all sides of the box.
  • Unacceptable materials: The following items are not accepted in any of our drop boxes: tires, car batteries, railroad ties, light ballasts, anything with Freon (ex: fridge, freezer, air conditioner), paint, asbestos, TVs, computer monitors, chemicals or hazardous materials.
  • Asbestos: If you have asbestos containing material you must let us know at the time your drop box is ordered. Special drop boxes and handling are required for this material. No asbestos containing material can be placed in our standard drop boxes.
  • Do not exceed the maximum weight limit: The weight of material placed in the box cannot exceed 11 tons. 
  • Scheduled Pickup
  • Make sure that your box is ready when it is scheduled to be hauled. If the box is blocked, overloaded, overweight; if the doors are open or not locked properly; if it has unacceptable material in it; or if it is not ready in any way when our driver arrives to haul it, you will be notified so you can correct the problem. If we are unable to contact you, the box will not be hauled and you may be charged a fee for us to return.
