Bulk Item Pick-up

Do you have heavy items like appliances, furniture, or large piles of tree limbs and brush? Good news! We are now picking up bulk trash on your regularly scheduled trash day. Simply set your bulk curbside or in the alley next to your trash cart and we will send a litter truck through on your regularly scheduled trash day to pick it up. Any appliance that has freon must have the freon removed and tagged by a certified technician and red-tagged before Sanitation can remove them.
