Have lots of trash and/or bulky items to dispose? Rely on your curbside bulk pickup
This holiday season you may entertain guests, open gifts and have
additional trash bulk pickup needs. Please note that you can put your
trash cart plus an additional six bags and/or bulk items at the curb on
your trash day.
Progressive Waste Solutions offers complimentary pickup of household
items like stoves, washers and dryers, and mattresses that are too large
to put in the trash bin, but the six item maximum does apply. No call
ahead is necessary. Place the item at the curb on your regular trash
If you have large boxes, cut them up and put them in your recycle
cart. Don't advertise new gifts on the curb. Be sure to cut up boxes for
large items so you aren't letting everyone know you have a brand new
television or other item in your home.
