Extra Pick-Ups and Larger Items
We can take most items on your regular pick up day. If you have a few extra bags put them next to your cart and the driver will take them. If you have a large number of bags or a bulkier item, please call our office so we can notify the driver. If you do not call, we cannot guarantee the item or items will be picked up. You will be charged for any items outside of your cart or container. Please keep in mind the carts and containers are for household garbage only. Please do not fill them with construction material, yard waste, rock or concrete, or any other heavy materials. You will be charged extra if these items are in your cart or container.
We cannot take any hazardous materials. Some common items such as gasoline, used motor oil, chemicals, paint, fluorescent lights and paint thinner cannot be thrown in the garbage. Please contact your County Waste Management Office if you have questions about the disposal of these items or other hazardous materials.
