Disposal of Special Items - Available Year Around

Extra Garbage:  There may occasionally be up to five extra bags of garbage at no extra cost. However, if large amounts of trash are placed on the curb there will be additional fees of $10 per yard for trash and $25 per yard for carpet plus a 22% administrative fee. To help avoid the fee for extra garbage, try cutting larger debris into small pieces and adding it to your regular container over several weeks.
