Bulk & Green Waste
Each month, the City collects large, bulky items which do not fit in the 90-gallon trash container.  The City now offers the option of green waste pickup during routine monthly bulk trash pick-up.  Learn more about the City's solid waste services and collection days by neighborhood.

Where Do I Place My Bulk Trash?
Materials must be placed in the street up against the curb in front of your property.  Where there is no curb, material must be placed at the edge of the street.  Bulk trash CANNOT be placed on the sidewalk or on private property.
 
When Do I Set Out My Bulk Trash?
Set out bulk trash for collection by 5 a.m. on the Monday of your scheduled service to ensure its picked up by the end of the week.  Find your Bulk Zone.
