Up to one hopper load of yard waste will be picked up at no extra charge as long as the material meets the length and thickness restrictions. What in the world is a hopper load? The hopper is the receiving bin on the back of the yard waste trucks. The hopper load size is a pile of yard waste that includes individual pieces no longer than three feet with a total pile dimension of approximately 4 feet wide by 3 feet high by 6 feet in length, or approximately two and three quarter cubic yards. An easier way to remember a hopper load size: it's the equivalent of fourteen yard and leaf bags or fourteen 32-gallon trash cans full.
All White Goods that have doors, such as refrigerators and freezers, shall have their doors removed prior to placement next to the paved street for pickup. The fee for pick up of these items will be twenty dollars ($20) for the first item and ten dollars ($10) per item for each additional item on that pick up.
Furniture shall be collected for a fee of fifteen dollars ($15) for the first item and five dollars ($5) for each additional item on that pick up.

THE FINE PRINT

Should these items be discovered again on the next scheduled pickup date, where arrangements have not been made for pick up, the City’s Public Works Department shall unilaterally remove the items and bill the property owner or tenant in reference to City Codes Section 38-4 and 38-7. The City’s Code Enforcement Inspector shall also be notified. When Items are discovered in the right-of-way that the City does not dispose of, the City’s Public Works Department will contact the property owner or tenant to explain that the situation needs to be corrected or that the material needs to be disposed of by the property owner or tenant. Should those items be discovered again on the next regularly scheduled pick up, the City’s code enforcement division shall be notified for further action.
