Curbside Collection Tip #1: Options for Extra Garbage

Curbside collection set out

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.
