Curbside bulky waste pickups are not for intended for entire house/apartment cleanouts.

Metal - Maximum length of eight feet. Maximum weight of 50 pounds per piece. Scrap Wood - A neat pile not to exceed four feet wide, eight feet long and three feet high. PLEASE NOTE: Construction debris such as shower surrounds, sinks, tubs, toilets, sheet-rock, or roof shingles are not eligible for bulky waste pickup and should be either delivered directly to the Transfer Station or removed by a private contractor.
Yes, at a cost. Weekly backyard service for trash and biweekly for recyclables is $485 per year. If you are a relatively small waste generator, and can hold your trash for 2 weeks at a time, you may purchase bi-weekly (every other week) backyard service for $242.50 per year.
