Bulk & Brush Collection

Weight of Bulky Items: Individual Bulky items must light enough to be loaded into refuse vehicle by one person.

Residents are allowed to set out for collection:  an aggregate of 3 cubic yards of BULKY WASTE / BRUSH / YARDWASTE per week (refer to diagram of cubic yards below)

Residents can set out acceptable BULKY items that are no larger than 3 feet by 3 feet by 4 feet

Please place smaller items in a container or box suitable for lifting items into refuse vehicle 

Please bundle items such as newspapers, old rugs or small sections of carpet, small limbs

We suggest tying/bundling brush into 4-foot-long bundles. This is to be included in your 3-yard limit.

BAGGED YARD WASTE (leaves/grass): may be placed in your cart for collection on your scheduled trash pickup day with the lid closed or use paper lawn/leaf bags or clear plastic bags and set out for bulk/brush/yardwaste collection on your regular trash day. Please do not use black bags because employees cannot tell if it’s trash or yardwaste. 

This is a general guideline for determining bulk sizing.

1 cubic yard is equivalent to the size of a kitchen stove.

2 cubic yard is equivalent to the size of a standard truck bed.

Acceptable Waste:

Furniture such as tables, sofas, chairs, lawn furniture

Appliance such as washing machines, dryers, stoves, water heaters, etc..

Misc. items including TV’s, large toys, basketball goals, sports equipment, bikes, kid’s toys must be labeled “bulky item” so they are not mistakenly put into trash truck.

Refrigerators / Freezers / AC Units: IMPORTANT: Item MUST be tagged with proof of freon removal by certified technician in order to collect

Unacceptable Waste:

No construction materials from remodelling projects – must call Frontier to get a quote on roll off container or special pickup
