Junk DO's and DONT's


Believe it or not there is a right way and a wrong way to set out your junk for pick up. The mechanical arm of the boom truck needs enough room to lift the junk pile up and into the dump bed. Only the driver travels with each truck; no other crew members are there to move piles or separate items that don't belong.
DO DON'T
Do set your junk items out by April 1st or October 1st. Wait until the end of the month The boom truck may not come back to your street.
Separate junk from brush. If the piles are mixed it cannot get picked up. Stack junk against any stationary objects: mailboxes, utility
 poles, fences, trees or under power lines. If the junk is too 
close to any stationary object it cannot get picked up.
Set your items at the edge of your property and not too far from the edge. Set junk on vacant lots or at vacant properties. This is actually illegal dumping.
