All residential customers can make two (2) appointments per year for the free pickup of acceptable bulky items including yard waste. Free Household Junk Pickup occurs from February through October. Appointments must be made in advance. Items can only be put out for collection 24 hours before the scheduled appointment.

In addition to the two Household Junk appointments, all residential customers can schedule two (2) appointments for appliance and e-waste collection in a calendar year. The appliance & e-waste program operates year round.
