Extra holiday trash?

garbage can

After holiday entertaining and gift giving, you may find excess packaging and bulky items — like Styrofoam™ — filling your garbage container.

Here are some options:

  • Set out an extra garbage can or bag on your collection day for a $5 fee. Can must be 32 gallons or smaller and weigh 55 pounds or less.
  • Items that are too big for your garbage container (such as appliances or furniture) can be picked up for an extra fee. Call your garbage and recycling company a week in advance for a cost estimate.
  • Renters: Talk to the landlord about setting out large or bulky items or extra garbage for collection. There is a fee for these services. If you live in a rental house or smallplex of two to four units, the landlord is required to pay for and provide curbside collection service, including weekly recycling and composting.

Find holiday recycling tips for renters who live in a multifamily community of five units or more.
