Advanced Disposal will begin curbside bulk waste collection on Sept. 6 for the City of Pontiac. One large bulk item per month will be allowed for curbside collection along with regularly scheduled garbage pickup.

If a resident’s normal garbage collection is on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday, bulk waste collection begins the week of Sept. 6. If normal garbage collection is on Thursday or Friday, bulk waste collection begins the week of Sept. 12. Bulk items must be placed curbside the night prior to, or by 6:00 a.m., on the scheduled day of collection. Scheduling bulk waste pickup is recommended, but not mandatory, and can be done by calling (888) 443-1717.

Items not accepted for collection include electronics and tires. Freon items will not be taken unless the refrigerant has been removed by a certified technician and properly stickered. Absorbent items such as mattresses, boxed springs, sofas, couches or carpet must be kept dry in order to be collected. Toilets must have their tanks removed from the base and set aside for collection.

In observance of Labor Day, there will be no service on Monday, Sept. 5, and service will resume on Tuesday, Sept. 6, with a one-day delay the rest of the week. For example, residents normally picked up on Monday, will be collected on Tuesday. Friday collection will move to Saturday. The holiday schedule applies for this week only and normal collection schedules will resume Sept. 12.
