The City of Gilroy is in California with San Jose and Sunnyvale to the north, Fresno and Clovis to the east, Watsonville to the west, Salinas to the south.

If there’s a change to your normal trash collection schedule then there’s a good chance your street sweeping schedule has changed too so make sure to check for updates.

If your regular service day falls on or after the holiday, your collection will be delayed by one day.

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in Gilroy and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
