Alpine Ė The city of Alpine is gearing up for their first round of bulky trash pick ups.
Four times a year, the city will come by and pick up bulky trash that people set out in their front yards.
The first week of each collection is for pick up of bulky items such as old furniture, mattresses, large plastic kidís toys and other large plastics. These items will go into the landfill.
The second week of collection is for leaves, grass clippings, brush, and tree trimmings. You must put leaves, grass clippings and other small trimmings in paper yard waste bags so they can be recycled. Plastic bags will not be picked up. Cut brush and tree limbs into pieces no longer than 4 feet, and bundle them with string or twine (no wire) so they are easy to pick up and can be chipped into mulch.
The third week is for metal: appliances, water heaters, bicycles, scrap metal, lawnmowers, and evaporative coolers. This metal will be recycled.
A maximum of five bulky items will be picked up at each residential address during each collection week.
Items must be on your property near the curb; do not put anything on the street, sidewalk, in an alley, or next to a dumpster.
The first round of pickups are as follows:
January 6: Bulky landfill items
January 13: Brush, tree limbs, bagged leaves and grass clippings
January 20: Large metal items
