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.
  • 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.
  • Artificial Christmas trees.

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.
