Roll-out Service / Backyard Services


NASA offers curbside Roll-out and Backyard Services to customers for an additional charge upon request. Roll-out services include collection of refuse, green waste, and recycling carts from a location other than curbside. The service requires that the driver dismounts the collection vehicle in order to obtain the carts from their storage location, empty them and properly return them to their storage location.

To utilize this service, the customer must grant NASA the right of access onto the premises in order to carry out the services. Carts must not exceed 60 pounds.


Manure Collection

NASA is a firm believer in recycling as much as possible; therefore we offer special collection and recycling of horse manure and bedding.

Working with a local facility, all materials are composted rather than disposed in a landfill. Research has shown that composting this material provides the following benefits:

  • 100% of animal waste is recycled
  • Reduces flies and their larvae
  • Kills parasites and pathogens
  • Reduces odors
  • Kills weed seeds
  • Evens out grazing patterns
  • Protects water quality

Contact NASA for more information on bin sizes and prices for manure collection.
