Remember that there have been some major changes in the collection of those special items once collected in "Special Pickups."
Many of those special items such as sofas will now be collected by sanitation crews on your regular garbage collection day, up to four cubic yards of material, about the size of two sofas. However, there are limitations:
- Washers, dryers, stoves, refrigerators and air conditioners will no longer be collected.
- There are limits on yard waste and brush.
- You can take bulky items, yard waste, old tires and other household materials to the Self-Help Center at 6660 N. Industrial Rd.
The change is expected to save taxpayers about $710,000 a year. Call the DPW call center at 286-CITY (2489) for pickup of larger amounts or other information.
