Special Trash Pickup Service
Last modified on July 15th, 2022 at 03:29 pm
Materials such as furniture, hot water tanks and large amounts of debris are too large to be collected by city sanitation trucks. To assist with the disposal of such items, the city offers a paid special trash pickup service. (We also offer free monthly bulk pickups. Click for more information.)
How to Request a Special Trash Pickup
To request a special trash pick-up, contact the operations administrative assistant (contact information is at the bottom of this page). The Street Department will schedule the pickup once the request has been submitted. Equipment such as dump trucks and backhoes are available to use on-site, but additional charges apply.
Please inquire via the operations administrative assistant (contact information below).
We can’t take everything. Items that we cannot accept include but are not limited to the following:
- Appliances (check with the Randolph County Solid Waste Authority for options)
- Free-flowing liquids (fully dried paint may be disposed of with household trash; the Randolph County Solid Waste Authority maintains this listing of options for disposing of other “special wastes”)
- Batteries (see RCSWA resource, above)
- Yard waste (use the city’s yard-waste recycling program)
Information about city recycling programs is available here.
