Bulky Waste Collection
Items such as household furnishings, appliances, mattresses, box springs, lawn equipment and similar items too large to be placed in the garbage rollout cart and not eligible for recycling or yard waste collection are considered bulky waste and must be scheduled for collection.
How To Prepare Bulky Waste For Collection
Place bulky waste at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on your scheduled collection day.
Place bulky waste within 6 feet of the curb and at least 3 feet away from other collection items and obstacles such as mailboxes, phone poles, vehicles, etc. Do not place bulky waste in the rollout carts. Do not block the sidewalk.
Please do not put items curbside earlier than the day before the scheduled collection. Items at the curb more than 24 hours before the scheduled collection could result in a fine of at least $50.
All items must be free of food, clothing, trash and flammable materials such as gasoline.
Please remove doors from refrigerators and rims from tires.
