Bulk should not be placed at the curb before 5PM of the day preceding the day of collection. No more than eight items of bulk waste, including containers and/or bags, may be left for collection on each appropriate Wednesday designated for pickup.
The disposal of mattresses has become a concern due to bedbugs being found on numerous occasions. To protect City workers, residents are required to wrap the mattresses and box springs in plastic sheets, secured with duct tape: Ord. 293-3M(5). They should be placed at the curb for pickup on the scheduled bulk day. Please do not place the items out at the curb more than 24 hours before the pickup. It is a violation of City code.

Mattress that are not wrapped in plastic and secured with tape, will not be taken.
