Large & Electronic Item Pick-Up

Special Item Pick-Up Services

Any item weighing more than 40 pounds, larger than a bag of trash or something that cannot be easily handled by one employee are considered special collections and will incur a fee. The fee is discounted if the pick-up is scheduled ahead of your regular garbage day. Some items, including electronics, televisions and monitors may not be immediately collected without an appointment. It is recommended to call about special items at least two to three business days before your regular garbage day.

Examples of special items:

  • FurnitureChair scheduled for large item pick-up
