  • we have several ways around here...
    one in the warmer months we have a bi wkly bulk pick up and can put
    large items out then, exp for frigs...
    and our regular trash collectors do pick them up, we have to call them ahead
    of time to let them know and they will bring a pick up truck to haul it off...
    Check your local city hall

  • We have to haul ours to the town transfer station (dump) where we then pay $10.00 - $15.00 to toss it.

  • Do you have a monthly bulk pick up day? Or put it on Craigs list for free and set it on the curb.....see what happens??

  • Is your trash picked up by your city or do you have an actual trash company? Depending on which it is, I would call and ask them. Our trash company will allow us to have one larg item that they will pick up but we have to call and tell them first.

  • Call your city hall we usually have big trash on Wednesday's. And regular trash pick up on Tuesdays & Fridays. Oh and no charge ;) GL
