Large Items


Large items such as carpet, sinks, sofas, toilets, and mattresses, will be taken during weekly trash pickup. Items should be set out beside your toter, on your normal collection day.

Please note that large items will be picked up by a separate truck than the one that picks up your normal trash, so it will not be picked up at the same time; however, it will be on the same day, shortly after.

Large item pick up is limited to approximately one small pickup truck load of items once per year per residence. Please note that any additional garbage bags or items outside of the trash toter is considered part of large item pick up

Please Note

The city cannot pick up anything with refrigerant such as window air conditioning units, refrigerators, and chest freezers. In addition, if you are paying a contractor for remodeling, they are responsible for removal of debris.
