The City picks up large/bulky items, batteries, appliances, and tires monthly. These items (not more than 3) must be out by 6 AM on the Monday of the collection week. Pickup will occur by Friday of that same week. Those with roll carts should place their bulk items by the curb. Those with alley collection should place their bulk items behind their own property and keep them 3 feet away from refuse containers. Do not lean on a neighbor's fence or property.
Place loose items in a container or tie in a bundle. If you have more than this, you can take to a residential dumping station or hold the excess on your property until the next bulk pickup. This is also the time to recycle your B.O.A.T.-E items--Batteries-Oil-Appliances-Tires-Electronics.
