The Rent-A-Truck Program is available to Florence residents who have an active sanitation account with the Town of Florence. Residents can rent a brush truck or dump truck for the weekend that they can fill with unwanted materials. The Town then picks up the truck after the weekend ends and disposes of the unwanted materials at a local landfill or transfer station. The fee for this service is $95.00.


The vehicle is delivered on a Friday afternoon and picked up on Monday morning. Holidays may affect this schedule. The truck is NOT moved during the weekend and remains placed where the Town parks the truck until it is picked up on Monday morning.


Reservations are not available. The truck is rented out on a first-come, first-serve basis befo
