Large items such as furniture, certain appliances, or mattresses can be disposed of in the trash. One bulk item per week, per resident. There is no additional cost to you for this service. See Refrigerators, Freezers, and Air Conditioners below for more.
Residents looking to dispose of an old basketball hoop and pole must break the pole into sections no longer than 36 inches. Anything longer than 36 inches will not be taken.
Residents looking to dispose of carpets or carpet padding should cut the carpet or padding into pieces no longer than 36 inches long, or four feet, and bind them with rope, twine, or heavy tape, before putting the carpeting to the curb. Up to five (5) four-foot rolls may be put out at one time.
Due to the risk of bed bugs, mattresses and box springs must be enclosed in mattress bags in order to be picked up. Mattress bags are available for purchase at major retails such as Lowes and Home Depot.
