Washington’s Annual Residential Curb-side Pick-Up Program will begin April 11 and conclude April 15. This is a special opportunity to dispose of large, bulky items not collected during normal weekly trash collection. 

The collection of items will occur on the same day of the week as regular household trash pick-up and will be handled directly by Waste Management personnel. Be sure to set out all items at the curb the evening prior to your regular trash collection day to be sure that nothing is missed. No return trips will be made. Items should be placed in cans, bags or bundles weighing less than 50 lbs. whenever possible. Large items (furniture, etc.) should be placed as near to the curb as possible. This program is provided to residential customers who fall under the city of Washington’s residential waste collection service contract with Waste Management.

The following items will not be collected for disposal: tires, large auto parts, appliances, batteries, used oil, demolition debris and concrete, yard waste, and any type of liquid or household hazardous waste (paint, solvents, turpentine, insecticides, pesticides, fluorescent tubes, etc.). 

Residents may make special arrangements for appliance pick-up (washers, dryers, etc.) by contacting Dave Mulligan at 678-6357 or TNT Recycling at 635-4642. 

Do not place appliances at the curb. Most appliances will be collected free of charge. Appliances containing freon coolants (refrigerators, air conditioners, etc.) may require a nominal fee.

Brush pick-up service will begin May 16.
