2021 Citywide Household Trash Pickup begins October 18


The citywide fall household trash pickup program will begin Monday, Oct. 18, 2021. Household rubbish, old appliances, and minor remodeling materials will be picked up. City collection efforts will follow the accompanying schedule as closely as possible.

Residents have always been very cooperative, and we ask for their continued cooperation this year by following a few guidelines:

  • Residents should place all materials near, but not beyond the curb. Keep materials off sidewalks and out of parking areas and gutters.
  • There is a limit of one truckload of material per residence. A truckload is defined as one pickup truck or approximately 3' high x 4' wide x 8' long, approximately 100 cubic feet maximum.
  • Please be advised that Chestnut Ridge Landfill will NOT accept any item that has or had Freon in it, such as, air conditioners, freezers, and refrigerators. Crews will NOT pick up hazardous items, paint, tires, or piles of rubbish that are mixed with brush or leaves.
  • All materials must be in place no later than 7:30 a.m. on the scheduled pickup day. Any materials put out after 7:30 a.m. may not be picked up.

Leaf collection is scheduled to begin on Nov. 29, 2021. A new schedule will be provided in advance of the start date. It should be noted that bagged yard waste will also be picked up with the regularly scheduled refuse collection throughout the year. 

Crews will pick up the contents of your normal trash bin as well as 2 additional bags. Customers are able to use these 2 bags for leaves/brush/yard waste as they wish. The bag cannot be overly heavy and must be able to fit into the blue bin as crews will load those bags back into the blue bin and dump. Waste Connections crews will not be able to pick up more than those 2 bags.

Please note that the proposed schedule is a general guide and can vary considerably from the actual schedule due to weather conditions and/or the amount of participation by residents.
