I've just completed a minor home construction project. Can I place that debris at the curb?

Construction debris (C&D) from minor home repairs is collected once a week on your scheduled bulk collection day and limited to 2 cubic yards weekly. All such material must be containerized in containers weighing less than 50 pounds when filled, with the exception of carpeting. Carpeting must be cut into 4-foot pieces, rolled and secured into bundles weighing less than 50 pounds. Construction debris exceeding 2 cubic yards at the curb is considered major construction and will have no portion collected. 

C&D that does not meet these guidelines will not be collected. If there is more than 2 cubic yards of C&D, call the SWA for an estimate to have the items removed. It is the residents’ responsibility to either modify how the waste is set out so that it meets the guidelines, or transport it to the Customer Convenience Drop-Off Center at the SWA landfill or an SWA transfer station, which does incur a disposal fee.
