Special Trash Pickup Service

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. Special pick-ups are performed by the Street Department, not the Sanitation Department.

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.

Service Fees
The following fees apply:

  • Minimum charge: 25.00
  • Pickup truck load: 50.00
  • Dump truck load: 90.00
  • Backhoe use: 65.00/hr.
  • Tires: $5.00 each (no min. charge )

Prohibited Items
We can’t take everything. Items that we cannot accept include but are not limited to the following:

Recycling
