Heavy trash pickup is the last full week of every month and is completed when every street is picked up once. We ask that each resident have their items out to the street by Monday. Once the crews have gone down your street, they will not return. This pickup schedule is also true for brush and limbs.
Building materials, such as roofing shingles, concrete, bricks or other construction debris will not be picked up. Tree limbs and brush cut by contractors also will not be picked up.
By City Ordinance, all large trash items may be placed by the roadside no more than a week before pickup.
Oversize loads shall be picked up for an additional fee. An oversized load is defined as over 128 cubic feet of debris or over 12 bags of leaves or grass clippings (or approximately the size of the bed for a normal size pickup truck). This includes yard debris or household debris and shall be assessed at a rate of $5.00 per cubic yard with a $30.00 minimum. Such charges will be assessed on the next city utility bill.
Please Note: Cut tree trunks and limbs into lengths of 4 feet and stack separately. If trunks and limbs are not cut to these lengths, Waste Management will NOT PICK UP, as it is becoming increasingly difficult to handle longer lengths.
Also, Waste Management will not pick up any freezers, refrigerators or air conditioners unless they are tagged by a certified technician that the freon has been properly removed.
Waste Management will also not pick up tires or batteries. For tire disposal, please contact City Hall at 979-265-2082.
