The Clean, Attractive Property Service is provided by the Solid Waste Department to city residents who need to dispose of large bulky items, such as couches, mattresses, furniture, brush and appliances including washers and dryers, refrigerators, freezers and water heaters.
Residents may have two free collections per year, each weighing up to 1 ton. There's a $20 charge for each additional collection.
Items scheduled for pickup should not be boxed or bagged, and must be placed curbside by 6 a.m. There should be at least 20 feet of overhead clearance, away from low power lines and tree limbs, for safe operation of the equipment.
Pickup days are as follows:
Monday and Thursday -- Brush. Cannot be mixed with trash, wood, paper, cans, bottles or wire. C.A.P.S. picks up brush and grinds it to be recycled into compost. Brush must be cut 6 feet in length or less, and cannot be larger than 24 inches in diameter.
Tuesday and Friday -- Miscellaneous. Cannot be mixed with household garbage, plastic bags, cardboard, paint, batteries or tires. C.A.P.S. picks up miscellaneous items such as couches, mattresses, furniture, wood and building materials.
Wednesday -- Metal. Remove old food from refrigerators and freezers. C.A.P.S. picks up metal items such as dishwashers, washers, dryers, refrigerators, water heaters and metal items.
