Large Item Pick-Up

Do you have furniture or other large household items you no longer want that can’t be donated?

Residents who receive the City’s curbside collection service can have up to four large household items collected each year (July 1 to June 30) by choosing one of the following options:

  1. Put out 4 items at the same time, once per year, or;
  2. Put out 1, 2, or 3 items at different times of the year (to a maximum of 4 per year).
