When it comes to picking a new home, Camden's amenities take the gold! From apartments with flex spaces for WFH to paw spas for our four-legged residents, Camden provides living excellence every day. One standout service Camden offers at most communities is doorstep trash pick up.
Five out of the seven days in the week – Sunday through Thursday, services like Valet Waste or Trash Butler collect garbage and recycling from your waste bin right outside your door. A waste bin is provided to you at move-in, so you won’t even have to think about it!
You may be wondering, how can I keep my trash bin clean and pristine? Well, I am not only a Camden team member, but I am also a Camden resident! I'm here to share some of my favorite doorstep trash pickup tips and tricks!

Use removable hooks on the outside of the bin to hold the bag in place, so it is easy to take off and out.
To keep the bin smelling fresh, place a few dryer sheets at the bottom! In case you need a heavy-duty refresher, you can use Febreze, Lysol and Clorox wipes or even scented trash bags.
You can also try using Arm and Hammer Odor Buster, or their nursery freshener for those with scent sensitivity.
If you sometimes have drips or spills, the trash service asks that you double bag. If something drips into the trash bin provided, you can even give it a little bath in your shower! If you run out of bags, don’t fret; we have extra in the office if needed!
