The charge is $40 per cubic yard with a $40.00 minimum.  As a general rule of thumb, the charge is $40 per larger item (appliances, furniture, etc) and a measurement will be taken for yardage on miscellaneous items (bags, boxed items, etc).  Additional fees may apply should Freon or tires be included in the curbside collection.

Fees for Unscheduled Bulk Collection

Associated fees will be invoiced to the property owner if the City collects the non-complying bulk items set out at the curb. The City reminds residents not to place personal property on or near the terrace as it may be collected and invoiced to the property owner.
