Don't forget about your bulk pickup options
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 year-round.
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 per week does apply.
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.
