On the first Monday of each month, we’ll collect almost anything. We have picked up everything from pianos to pie cabinets and from tree limbs to treadmills.
Still, as you might imagine, we have had to create some limitations:
1. At any one stop, we will pick up no more than nine cubic yards of materials (measured without crushing or compressing). If you set out more than that, you will need to pull some back until the following month.
2. We don’t accept hazardous materials or those which cannot be dumped at the landfill. Thus, we won’t pick up motor oil, insecticide, paint (unless it is dried out), animal carcasses, and the like. We also can’t pick up tires, motor vehicles, lead acid batteries, or tree stumps. (However, see the May Current to learn more about Household Hazardous Waste Cleanup Day on May 13 at the Rockingham County Landfill.)
3. Materials must be at the edge of the street. Any materials placed curbside will be considered trash to be removed.
4. Materials need to be sorted. Take a look at the details on our website.
5. Grass clippings and leaves must be bagged. Other vegetation must be stacked as neatly as possible, with branches no longer than eight feet. Your vegetation can also be placed in a Waste Management trash cart for regular weekly pickup. If you need an additional cart, for just $1.00 per month, give B-Connected a call at (540) 908-4212.
6. Please do not place items in a trash can. Lifting heavy cans is hazardous for our crew. Plus, we assume that anything at the curb is trash.
Large item pickup for May begins on Monday, May 1.
