A separate truck picks up large bulky items such as appliances, hot water tanks, etc., on the same day as your regular refuse collection. Items must be at your curb by 7:00 a.m. on refuse day. Please separate these items from your regular refuse by 2 - 3 feet. Refrigerator and freezer doors must be removed for safety reasons due to state law. If your residence is on a cul-de-sac or dead-end, or if you live in an apartment/condo complex, the Department of Public Service office should be notified the day prior to your refuse collection by calling 248-246-3300.
