All items are to be placed on the curb by 6 a.m. on the assigned pickup day.

Any item(s) not longer than 5 feet or more than 50 pounds left at the CURBSIDE at any of the above defined residential units will be picked up except for the following:
1. Yard waste, including grass clippings, leaves, brush and tree material
2. Household refuse/garbage that should be put out for normal collection
