*Please do not place items for the large item pickup at the roadside until one week before your pickup will be held. If the contractor does not take an item(s) you placed on the roadside, it has been rejected and must be disposed of at your expense. REJECTED ITEMS will have a visible X painted on them. Take pride in your home and respect your neighbors. Please do not leave trash at the roadside expecting it to be picked up.

*Please note that the entire town is picked up in one day. This requires the contractor to work into the very late evening. Please do not call Town Hall the day of pickup about missed pick-up inquires as the contractor is most likely still completing pickup. If a pickup is missed please call the day after scheduled pickup for assistance. REJECTED ITEMS will have a visible X painted on them.
