WHAT items require a Special Pickup appointment?

  • Appliances and other items that are at least 98% metal - such as metal cabinets, metal  shelving, grills and lawn mowers.
  • Artificial Christmas trees.
  • Tires (up to 4 tires may be collected from a residence each year).
  • Items such as lawn mowers must be drained of all fluids (oil and gas)
  • Ensure refrigerator doors are removed or tied shut for safety prior to leaving on curb.

WHEN are Special Pickups?

Special Pickups must be scheduled in advance and they take place every Wednesday, by appointment only. The cut-off time for scheduling non-refrigerant Special Pickups is noon on the Tuesday before our Wednesday collections. Special Pickups with refrigerants also require an appointment, but these items are put on a brief waitlist and generally not completed the subsequent Wednesday. All items must be at the curb by 7 a.m. on the Wednesday of your scheduled pick-up date.
