What is Bulky Waste?

Bulky Waste means stoves, refrigerators with a Freon evacuation certificate, water tanks, washing machines, furniture, carpet, fencing materials, more than ten bags of landscape waste or bundles of brush, and other items of a similar nature that can be loaded by two employees in five (5) minutes or less, except construction debris, dead animals, hazardous waste or stable matter with weights or volumes greater than those allowed for trash collection containers.

Brush must be placed within eight feet of the curb. Trees, tree limbs, and brush cannot exceed four inches in diameter, five feet in length, must be bundled (tied together), and bundles cannot weigh more than 60lbs. If brush is is too big for the Republic Services pickup requirements, contact Public Works to arrange a curbside chipping service. 

What is not allowed?

Televisions, propane, construction material (of any kind), oil, and paint must be dried completely. If you have any additional questions on what can and can not be placed out, please call the business office at (210) 619-1100.

What day will my pick-up be?
