7:00 p.m. on the business day before your collection day
If you request your pick up after the deadline, we'll collect your bulk items the following week on your trash collection day.
Disassemble extremely large bulk items. At least one side of the item must be less than 4 feet wide. Items with all sides larger than 4 feet will not fit in our collection truck, so we will not collect them. Example: pianos
On your collection day, separate your bulk trash items from any regular household trash, recyclables, yard trim and scrap metal you set out for pickup.
Set all of your bulk trash items, regular household trash, recycling, yard trim, and scrap metal the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day.
