Oversized Collection

One oversized item per week per residential unit can be placed curbside with regular trash.  The oversized item must be too large to fit into a trash container and of a weight to be lifted by two people at collection.  Items that are too heavy to be lifted into a truck by two people will not be accepted.

Oversized items are items that are too big for the 32-gallon trash container and acceptable items include:

  • Carpet (48 inches maximum length rolled and tied)
  • Furniture (limited to 6 feet in length and no sleeper sofas)
  • Mattresses
  • Plumbing fixtures, such as toilets and sinks
  • Discarded lawnmowers (gasoline and oil must be removed)
  • Scrap metal (48 inches maximum length)
  • Microwave ovens

Oversized items are not:

  • Anything that can fit in a 32-gallon trash container, no matter how much space it utilizes in the container.
  • Additional trash bags that do not fit in the 32-gallon trash container.
  • Cardboard boxes filled with trash.

Refuse exceeding the container/ bag requirements that is not an oversized item and not marked with an extra service tag will not be collected.
