A. Starting the first week of January 2021 bulk will be picked up one day per month instead of every week. Bulk items such as couches and furniture can be placed out "as is" for collection on your bulk day. Toilets need to be unbolted from the tank for pick up. Carpet needs to be cut into 4 foot length or less, rolled and tied into bundles less than 45 lbs. each. Mattresses and box springs will need to be covered or wrapped in plastic before being disposed. Mattress/Box spring bags can be found at big box stores for a small cost. The schedule is as follows:
