Curbside Bulky and Green Waste Collection

Residential trash service also includes monthly bulky item and green waste collection. Ace Recycling & Disposal will pick up bulky items that are too big to fit in trash cans on the third FULL week of every month on the customers normally scheduled trash day. (With the "week" starting on a Sunday.) There are very important guidelines that you must follow. Please read the following carefully:

  1. Bulky waste items include furniture, mattresses, water heaters, lamps, car seats, bikes, large toys and household appliances (without Freon). There is a 75-pound limit.
  2. Green waste items include wood products such as 2 x 4's, particleboard, plywood, etc. (large metal and concrete will not be picked up and must be removed), leaves, twigs, pine needles, wood chips, and tree limbs. Green waste does NOT include grass clippings, weeds or non-woody plants.
  3. All materials including tree limbs and stumps should be cut into 4-foot lengths and be no more than 18” in diameter, they MUST be bundled and twined together, and must weigh less than 75 pounds.
  4. Loose material (leaves, twigs, pine needles, wood chips, etc.) should be placed inside trash bags or boxes. They may also be placed in trash cans.
  5. Place bulky and green waste items on your curb no sooner than 2 days prior to your normally scheduled trash day and no later than 6:30 a.m. on your scheduled trash day. Ace Recycling & Disposal will not return to pick up items if they are not properly prepared and placed on the curbside in time.
  6. Stack green waste together, bundled and twined in 4-foot sections. Place bulky waste in another pile at least 2 feet away from green waste. Do not park vehicles within 15ft. of the pile.
  7. Freon must be removed from items (refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners) by a professional and be tagged with a copy of the receipt.
  8. 55-gallon drums must be emptied and have the tops removed.
  9. Do not place items in front of your neighbor’s home.
  10. Scavenging is against the law.
