The 2017 Fall Bulk Waste collection begins on September 11. Watch for your card in the mail and please follow the guidelines as listed below.
1 Place bulk waste curbside no sooner than the Saturday prior to your scheduled collection date (no later than 7:00 a.m.).
2 Do not put waste on the parkstrip, against a fence, on top of a utility box or storm water inlet grate.
3 Place all green waste (shrubs, branches, wood) in one pile. Place all other trash into a separate pile (two feet away).
4 Don't park within 15 feet of either pile, to allow the loader to have enough space to work.
5 Loose material (leaves, twigs, pine needles, wood chips, etc.) should be placed inside trash bags or boxes.
6 Lawnmowers and other similar items must have the oil and gasoline removed.
7 55-gallon containers should be emptied and have either the tops removed or be cut in half.
8 All materials including tree limbs and stumps should be cut into 4 foot lengths and be no more than 18" in diameter.
9 If you hire a landscaper or carpenter to do work at your home, they are responsible for removing contractor debris.
10 Hauling to another location is considered illegal dumping. If you see illegal dumping, please get the license plate number and contact the Police Department at 801-799-3000.
