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

To find trash pickup on your street visit: https://www.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=1e68c8b4cbcf4e8aa74913f7b5a65609&extent=2508500.8064%2C366418.7518%2C2546995.1953%2C424097.6407%2C32054

What time does trash collection start?

Trash collection starts at 7 a.m. Make sure to have your bins on the curb by then.

The best place to put your cart is in your driveway apron if you have a driveway, or a few feet from your garage if you’re in an alley way. This gives the mechanical arm of the truck enough room to safely pick up your cart.

If your cart was not set out or inaccessible when our trucks arrived for collection, we can make a return trip for a fee.
