If the county does not take an item(s) placed on the roadside, it has been rejected and must be disposed of at the owner’s expense.
On this special pick‐up, the county collects appliances, furniture, mattresses and box springs. Remove doors from refrigerators. Items also collected are used auto tires, used motor oil in spill proof containers, scrap metal and dried-out, water-based paint.
County workers will not pick up old clothes, yard debris, construction/demolition materials or hazardous materials like pesticides and oil-based paint.
