Residents will be able to look up their prescheduled dates online starting next month. They will not need to contact the county to request pickup on a scheduled day.

If residents cannot find their collection dates, they can contact the Bureau of Solid Waste Management.

Residents also can continue to bring bulk items to one of the county’s three dropoff centers throughout the year.

Acceptable bulk items include, but are not limited to: appliances, furniture, electronics, building materials and miscellaneous household items. Items like carpets, metal sheds and lawn mowers will require special preparation for collection.

Information on program guidelines, restrictions, and instructions for setting out items are on the county’s website. The instructions that will be mailed will include the same information.

The department of public works will also mail the 2022 trash and recycling schedules, which contain specific collection day information for each address in the county.

Residents of single-family homes who do not receive their schedule by Dec. 29 can contact the Bureau of Solid Waste Management. The schedules may be downloaded from the county’s website starting Jan. 1.
