Bulk Items: You must call in advance for bulk items (furniture, appliances, junk clean out, yard debris). Due to limited space on the truck, if you have not called in advance, items may be left. Please label any items that are not obvious as refuse. Route personnel are limited to 2 cubic yards of bulk, twice a month, collected with regular trash once it has been scheduled. Two cubic yards is 6ft long x 3ft wide x 3ft tall, or about the size of a loveseat.
