Bulk Trash Placement

Bulk material can be put out no more than “nine days prior to the week of collection.” Loose material must be boxed or bagged (they’re not going to rake things up for you). There are several items not accepted, including (but not limited to) tires, hazardous waste and appliances that use refrigerants. See the list and other rules.
