Why must I separate my special pick up items?
Every item goes to a separate location; brush is taken to a storage area for the city to recycle into mulch; metal is taken to a recycling center; yard waste is taken to the landfill, which is then used for mulch; bulk trash is taken to the landfill for disposal. Each of these reduces the amount of trash for tipping fees.
