Special Pickup Requests

Home

Special pick-ups are designed for the collection of bulk items that will not fit into the hopper of a rubbish scooter, and larger quantity of items. There is a $10.00 fee for each special pick-up load (pick-up truck is 0.75 tons or 5x8) and a two (2) load maximum per six (6) months. All rubbish cans included in a special pick-up will be discarded, no exceptions.

Special pick-ups are arranged on a first-come, first-serve basis. The City cannot offer a specific time or day for collection; your special pick-up will be collected within 4 business days of when you submit your payment. 

Special Pickups must be made either via U.S.  Post, placed in the Building Department drop box (address below), or in person at the Building Department (cash or personal check only):
