The City offers bulk pick-ups on a call in basis so we can schedule and pick-up items on a route efficiently when we are not running regular routes. We also want to inform residents of what we do and don’t pickup, that items placed at the curb are intended to be picked up by the City and let you know if additional charges may apply.
