Link to Acceptable Items
Pre-registration is a must. By doing so, you have a guarantee that your acceptable waste will be taken at your preferred time and your wait will be minimal. Arriving without pre-registration or earlier or later than your appointment time will substantially increase your waiting time. There is a limit up to 25 liquid gallons or 25 solid pounds per household. For more details, please contact the DPW.
