  • Set out all material behind the curb and not in the street.
  • There is no alley collection.

  • Set out bagged material with regular trash.  Each bag must weigh less than 50 pounds for regular trash pick up. 
  • Items must be no longer than 8-10 feet in length.
  • Place all material 3 feet away from mailboxes, trees, poles and other obstructions.check-mark-3-xxl_thumb_thumb.png
  • Do not place items under tree limbs.
  • Loose construction and demolition material (e.g. sheet rock, tiles, bricks, rubble, etc.) should be placed in a container or on a pallet for collection.
