Remember, the City’s waste contractor, Republic Services, picks up yard waste along with your garbage and recycling every Monday in the fall, so you don’t need to get that material to the curb on Friday night. Instead, the October 19th pick-up is to handle large, bulky items as described on the Republic Services website:
Some items are too large to fit in your trash container. We know you don’t always have the time or ability to dispose of your large, bulky waste items. Junk removal and bulk trash is our job … including appliance pick up, furniture removal, and mattress pick up – so you don’t have to worry about it.
Bulk waste includes items that are typically too large to be disposed of in your regular curbside trash container. To help you get rid of these large items, Republic Services offers easy bulk trash pickup for recycling or disposal, so you don’t have to haul them to a landfill. Bulk items typically include: couches, lamps, rugs, mattresses, and large appliances without Freon.
If you have any other questions, you can contact us through our website and we’ll get back to you with an answer.
