Bulk trash consists of items that require special handling, such as appliances, furniture, or other household items which do not fit in the roll-out. This includes garbage, which is not containerized, yard waste, or construction material which is mixed with trash, building materials or any other large or heavy items.
Sanitation crews will automatically pick up bulky items at NO COST, as long as, these piles are placed appropriately at the curb on the designated collection day and measure 4 ft. x 8 ft. x 5 ft. or less.
Piles larger than 4 ft. x 8 ft. x 5 ft. will be assessed with a $45.00 fee and piles larger than 6 ft. x 10 ft. will be assessed with a $90.00 fee. The fee will be added to your water bill.
NOTE: According to Valdosta City Ordinance Section 4-2003 (C) (2), all property owners and/or property management companies that serve dispossessory—or eviction—notices to residents will be responsible for calling for a special pickup the day before the dispossession is to be served to the resident. Property owners bear ultimate responsibility for proper notification and costs if tenants have been evicted. Failure to comply will result in additional charges associated with the disposal of each special pickup that is made by the city.
