Yard waste program

We provide yard waste collection throughout the spring, summer and fall (April-November). Check the collection schedule before putting out yard waste.

Bulky item pick up

Residents cannot put furniture, appliances or other bulky items out for collection with their regular household garbage. A free pick up service is available once between the months of January to June, and once between the months of July to December.

With seven days' notice, a resident can schedule a bulky item pick up online.
