​Scheduling Bulky Waste Pick-Up

Residents must call 311 Monday to Friday between 8am to 5pm to schedule collection of bulky waste. Bulky waste should not be placed out for collection 24 hours prior to the scheduled date given for collection. If residents place bulky items out more than 24 hours prior to the scheduled collection, they will be fined. Small businesses are not eligible for bulky waste collection and must contract with private vendors for service.
