We have made a significant change to our Large Trash Item Collection Program. We will continue with the current practice of “Appointments Only” *, however, effective January 1, 2022, Large Trash Item Collection will take place on a designated Friday of each month. The designated Friday is determined by your normally scheduled pick-up day for Trash Collection. 

Your current, regularly scheduled Trash Collection day will have a new designation. If your Trash Collection is scheduled for Mondays, you will now be “Area 1”; Tuesdays will be “Area 2”; Wednesdays will be “Area 3”, and Thursdays will be “Area 4”. 

As to when residents will have their Large Trash Item(s) picked up, that will be determined as the new Trash Collection day designations go into effect.

“Appointments Only” * Large Trash Item Collection for Area 1 will be the first Friday of the month; Area 2 will be the second Friday of the month; Area 3 will be the third Friday of the month, and Area 4 will be the last Friday of the month. 

You can also review the chart below to see which Friday will be your Large Trash Item Collection Day. 

If your current Trash Pick-Up Day is... Your New Designated Name for Large Item Trash Collection is… Your 2022 Large Item Collection Day will be…
Monday Area 1 1st Friday of the month
Tuesday Area 2 2nd Friday of the month
Wednesday Area 3 3rd Friday of the month
Thursday Area 4 4th Friday of the month
