Overflow bags or containers of household trash will be collected per overflow collection cycle (every 3 weeks).
Containers or bags used for overflow trash must be no larger than 32 gallons in size and weigh no more than 50 pounds. Containers or bags exceeding 32 gallons or 50 pounds cannot be collected.
Be sure to set overflow trash at least 2 feet to the side of your black trash cart and any other obstacles.
Use heavy duty trash bags to prevent breakage and odors.
A maximum of 10 items per scheduled overflow collection day (includes combination of bundled branches and household trash).
Bundled branches can be set out as overflow. Branches must be tied and bundled in bundles less than 4 feet in length with no branch larger than 4 inches in diameter and easily handled by one person. Branch bundles count as part of your 10 items acceptable for collection during your scheduled overflow collection cycle (every 3 weeks).
During scheduled LIP Collection:
- A maximum of 5 large items (furniture, etc.) will be collected per LIP cycle (every 9 weeks) per household.
- Be sure to set out your black trash cart by 7 AM on your scheduled collection day. Collection vehicles will not be able to return for late set outs, as service resources are extremely limited.
- Do not place unacceptable items in your black trash cart. Trash carts containing tree limbs, branches or wood boards cannot be emptied, as they cause damage to the collection vehicles.
