• Place your items in the street in front of your residence. Trailer parks residents can place items next to the road adjacent to their home.

• Community piles are not allowed.

• Keep all cleanup piles separate from household trash containers to avoid interrupting regular trash service.

• Do not place items against buildings or fences.

• Do not place items out that you do not want removed: wheelbarrow, trashcans, tubs, etc., as all items in the pick up area will be removed.

• City crews will not go onto private property to pick up items.
