Worry-Free Waste Collection. Worry-Free Lifestyle.

Long, late night walks to the dumpster are a thing of the past. Let Valet Living do it for you.

How It Works

There’s a reason the industry calls it “valet” trash. It’s because Valet Living sets the standard for how to do it right. Valet Living communities receive doorstep collection of trash and recycling five nights a week. We also offer customized days and times to fit your community’s specific needs.

To get started, it’s as easy as 1-2-3.

Step 1

Trash Preparation

Communities have different collection dates and service times and use various waste containers. Check with your community management team to verify your collection dates, service times or a missing waste container.

All bags must be securely tied for collection. No loose items. Keep bags under 25 pounds.

Running short on bag supplies? Reorder anytime from our Shop.

Step 2

Ready for Pickup

Place the container(s) outside your doorstep. Check with your community management team to verify the waste collection dates and service times at your community.

Step 3

You're Done!

Simply return the container back inside your apartment home by 9:00am the next morning.
