Effective January 1, 2022, there will be a $35 charge for each large Bulk Trash item. Items to be charged for include mattresses, box springs and any other larger item normally picked up during Bulk Trash week. The size dimension is anything over 30 cubic feet.
Residents are asked to go to the Public Works office at 205 Lacey Street to fill out a Bulk Trash Pickup Request form. The link to access the form is below. Items need to be paid for at 205 Lacey Street. Once payment is received a date for pickup will be provided. There is a payment drop box at 205 Lacey Street to assist residents dropping off the form and payment after hours.
Public Works employees are still not permitted onto your property, so you will need to have the item(s) curbside on the specified day of pickup.
Bulk trash collection takes place on the regular trash collection day for your quadrant, during the week containing the 1st Monday of the month. If the first of the month falls on a business day after a Monday, bulk collection will take place the following week. Please see below for specific dates for Bulk trash collection each month.
