In January 2020, the Mayor and Council adopted Ordinance 20-O-01 which made changes to the collection of Special Trash. It prohibits the placement of materials at properties that did not generate the materials; sets fees for collection and fees for Refuse, Recycling and Yard Waste receptacles; and sets penalties for violations.
During the pilot program, The Department of Public Works is tracking all bulk trash items collected. Residents may receive correspondence from the City regarding this, it is not a bill, but instead should be used to help inform you of how many items we have picked up and how many collections you have had. During this time you may have many questions, please reach out to email@example.com. This is a learning process and your feedback is welcome.
In its final form, this Ordinance includes the following provisions:
For a single-family, owner-occupied residence: Up to four bulky refuse collections per calendar year, with a maximum total of 20 bulky refuse items, will be free of charge to the resident.
For a single-family rental property that pays for City trash services: Up to four bulky refuse collections per calendar year, with a maximum total of 29 bulky refuse items, will be free of charge.
For quantities and/or frequency more than stated above, a $20 collection fee per item over the allowable number of items will be imposed.
