Special Calls for Excess Waste

 Step 1 of 1
Current Balance: $0.00

The city provides a special pick-up service to its solid waste customers who are in the process of moving or may have a lot of waste to get rid of after de-cluttering a basement or attic. This special call for service allows our customers to pay a flat fee of $40.00 for pickup of excess waste removed from their household in lieu of purchasing extra garbage stickers which could be very costly.

There are some limitations to this program due to regulations and equipment. Residents are strongly encouraged to use their every other week bulky waste collection for furniture and appliances.

  1. The $40.00 fee applies to one trip to pickup excess waste; a maximum of 5 cubic yards, (that's about 80 33-gallon garbage bags or about one large pickup truck load).
  2. No cardboard boxes filled with garbage.
  3. Loose items must be bagged: maximum garbage bag size is 33-gallon, maximum weight is 50 pounds per bag.
  4. No building materials or construction debris from home improvement projects.
  5. Carpet must be placed in rolled bundles no longer than 4ft and no more than 50 pounds each.
  6. Limit 5 tires.
  7. No yard waste.
  8. No hazardous wastes and no liquids.
  9. Paint must be dried - leave the lids off.
  10. Remove all liquids from lawnmowers, snow-blowers, etc.
  11. Place everything at your normal point of collection.
  12. Items have to be available for pick-up at 7:00 am on the scheduled date.
