Stone Sanitation, Roland’s contracted residential garbage service, will begin billing for excessive amounts garbage. 

Residential properties are allowed one trash bin provided by Stone Sanitation or up to four 30-gallon garbage cans, garbage bags, or any combination thereof per week for the monthly fee of $13.85 which is included in the City’s utility bill.  Residents putting out more than the allowed amount will start being billed directly from Stone Sanitation for the additional trash.

An email to the City of Roland from Mike Keeran, Site Manager, said,

“We have been taking all the trash the residents of Roland have had for the last couple of years at a loss to Stone. We were hoping that is was a short term problem but it has persisted and even become worse within last six months.  We can no longer fit the route in one truck load. Unfortunately this has no longer made servicing Roland profitable for Stone Sanitation. In fact we are still servicing Roland at a loss now.

We do value our relationship and long partnership with the town of Roland and would like to continue to provide service. To be able to do that we are going to have to adhere to the contracted 4 can limit and charge for anything else the customers place out to be disposed of. We will also stop taking construction and demolition items placed out at the curb as these items should be disposed of in a roll-off or hauled to the landfill. We will still pick up bulky household items and extra household waste set out at the curb for a fee if beyond the 4 can limit.

I really hope this works well for both parties and allows us to service Roland’s community for many years to come.”

If you have additional trash that needs picked up, need a roll-off, or have general questions about your trash pickup, call Stone Sanitation at 641-752-7165.
