Each household is only allowed to bring one pickup truckload of garbage. The event will also accept large items like furniture, mattresses, and carpets.
Items not allowed include:
- Industrial or commercial waste items, concrete, cement or rocks.
- Hazardous materials (paints, chemicals, thinners, lawncare, etc.)
- Appliances using freon (fridges, freezers, air conditioners, etc.)
