After holiday entertaining and gift giving, you may find excess packaging and bulky items filling your garbage can.
- Set out an extra garbage can or bag on your collection day for a $5 fee. Extra garbage must be 32 gallons or smaller and weigh 55 lbs. or less.
- Items that are too big for your garbage container (such as appliances, furniture or large branches) can be picked up for an extra charge. Call your garbage and recycling company a week in advance for a cost estimate.
- Renters: talk to your landlord about setting out large or bulky items or extra garbage for collection. There is a fee for these services.
- Visit Metro's website to learn where to recycle items that cannot be left at the curb.
