I believe that if you have a heavy item that can't be picked up easily by one person, like an appliance you need to call Public Works the Monday before. I had an old stove last year I called & they picked it up separately from the other items.

Ron is correct, there are scavengers out there who most likely take those items...Some may even take most metal items so they can sell it for scrap. People may want to consider donating any electronics (if in working condition). I believe the scouts were doing this some time ago and were collecting them behind the library.. IMHO, we should not expect our garbage men to pickup extremely heavy items.

If you put out a white item (Fridge, stove, washer/dryer) all the doors absolutly must be removed as they are a saftey hazard as kids climb in shut the doors and well we know what happens. Must call on Monday so they can have the correct number of men in your neighbor hoodf

Why am I still seeing bulk trash all over town? Was the schedule changed? If so, please updated this page. My last regular trash was picked up on Friday, May 24th.

I'm relatively new to town - does DPW pick up the brown paper backs with grass clippings or hedge trimmings?
