Please be sure to have your brush/bulky items out before 7:00 a.m. on Monday, December 4. Items placed on the curb after this time will not be picked up if your street has already been serviced.

- Do not place piles in front of parked cars, near fences, trees, mailboxes, beneath overhead wires, low-hanging tree limbs, or on top of gas/water meters.
