Self-hauled car, pick-up loads and small utility trailers with only:

  • Residential waste
  • Wooden furniture

  • Construction and demolition waste (must be separated from residential waste)
  • Residential yard waste (loose or in approved compostable bags)
  • Other organic waste (must be separated from residential waste
  • E-waste (TVs, computer equipment, fax machines, copy equipment, etc)
  • Metals (scrap metal, lawn mowers, propane tanks, BBQs, etc)
  • Appliances (fridges, freezers, stoves, washers, dryers, microwaves, etc)
  • ALL commercial loads (ICI, C&D, clearing and grubbing)


Even better than recycling is reusing, and when it comes to items that still have some life in them, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure! Reusing not only keeps still useful items out of the landfill, but also:

  • Saves you money
  • Saves the energy and resources needed to make new items, including the packaging
  • Prevents additional pollution that would have been generated
  • Reduces greenhouse gases
  • Good condition items are re-homed and re-purposed for years to come

Got stuff? Tag ‘n’ Take is a once/year initiative to help connect unwanted (yet useful) items with new owners. Tag items that are in good condition and put them at your curb after dawn. Remove all leftover items the following day before dusk.
