Bulky Items Pick Up

If you currently receive residential collection from the City, you can receive special pick up to dispose of household items or 'bulky items' twice a year.  You must preregister each item for this service by calling 658-4455 between 8:30 a.m and 4:30 p.m to register.  Staff from Municipal Operations will call you back with an assigned pick up date.  Be sure your items are curbside on that date by 7:30 a.m.

Illegal Dumping

Unfortunately, garbage collectors have no way of knowing whose garbage is on your property.  Therefore, you are responsible for any garbage on your property.  If you can identify the person responsible for illegally dumping on your property, call us for assistance at 658-4455.
