The refuse collection function includes weekly curbside pickup of residential trash; quarterly large trash pickup; collection of grass, lawn debris, and brush; and the special pickup of bulk trash items on a “paid-scheduled” basis. Recyclables are picked up by a contract hauler in conjunction with your normal trash pickup.
