Out-of-Cycle Collections

If a scheduled brush or bulky item collection was missed or if an additional brush or bulky item collection is required, residents can call 3-1-1 and schedule an out-of-cycle collection. There is a fee assessed for this service; the fee charged is based on the size of the load.

Upon requesting the service, the Solid Waste Management Department will send a staff member to offer a free estimate on the cost involved with the collection and disposal of the materials through an out-of-cycle collection (see below). Once the fee is paid, the City will collect items within two working days. It is that easy! For more information, call 3-1-1.

Size of Pile Fee
One item $50.00
Up to four (4) cubic yards $50.00
Each additional four (4) cubic yards (or any portion) $25.00
