Is metal considered bulk pick up…

Metal is NOT picked up with bulk trash. Since metal can be recycled through our recycling program, we require residents to notify our department to schedule a separate pick-up. Metal is picked up every Friday regardless of your bulk pick-up day.  The request must be received by 2:00 pm on the Thursday prior to your pick-up.  Residents can request picked up either through our website or by calling 856.629.4444.
