Bulky Waste Pick-Up 


In addition to the current bulk pick-up that is provided once a month on Fridays, during the months of May, June, July, and August residents can call the Public Works Call Center at 333-4800 to schedule an additional biweekly bulk pick-up.


Bulk waste pick-ups must be scheduled in advance by calling 333-4800.  Residents can call between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to request a pick up and identify the types of materials to be collected. The crew report, listing the types of items to be collected, is finalized at 2:00 p.m. the day before the scheduled pick-up, so no new items are permitted to be added to the list after that time. 

Bulk waste items are to be set out after 3:00 p.m. of the day before the scheduled pick-up.  City crews begin pick-ups at 7:00 a.m.

You must separate your metal items (stoves, refrigerators, etc.) from other bulk items.  Remember to remove refrigerator doors.

n     All loose and small items must be securely contained, bundled or bagged for easy pickup.

n     Sorry, the City cannot pick up concrete, rocks, brick blocks, sand, gravel, or hazardous waste.

n     Yard waste (brush, hedges, tree limbs, etc.) must be tied into bundles not larger than 4 feet long and 18 inches in diameter.

n     Bundles are limited to 25 pounds each.

n     Remember, the City cannot pick up grass clippings.
