What items are accepted as bulk pick-up?

There are no limits placed on regular household trash. Recycling materials must fit into Republic-issued container.

Items considered to be bulk waste such as furniture, appliances and brush have the following limits:

Furniture: Republic will collect up to 2 cubic yards per resident per regular collection. If you have a limited amount of furniture that needs disposal, place at the curb and Republic will collect as they can.

Appliances: Dishwashers, microwave ovens, stoves, washing machines, dryers, and water heaters can be placed for collection at the curb as part of regular bulk waste collection, which is allowed at up to 2 cubic yards per resident per collection. Appliances such as freezers, refrigerators and air condition units (up to 5 ton capacity), can also be placed for collection; however, Freon must be removed and bear a certification tag stating that the refrigerant was properly removed and disposed of by a certified technician.

Brush: Up to 2 cubic yards of bundled brush can be placed for collection along your regular garbage collection. In addition, residents can place up to 12 cubic yards unbundled brush for collection annually. This can either be done at one time or residents can opt to utilize the allotment for up to three separate collections of 4 cubic yards per collection.
