Bulky items including furniture, mattresses, appliances and boxes will be collected at curbside free. There is no charge for the first three cubic yards, up to 3 feet X 3 feet X 9 feet. A fee of $7.50 will be charged for each additional cubic yard. Refrigerators containing Freon will incur a $42 charge.
