Clean, Attractive Property Service (CAPS)
The Clean, Attractive Property Service (CAPS) is provided by the Solid Waste Department to city residents who wish to dispose of large bulky items such as couches, mattresses, furniture, brush and appliances (including washers, dryers, refrigerators, freezers and water heaters).
For residential customers who are paying a monthly Solid Waste fee, the first two CAPS pickups are free, up to one ton per collection. Residential customers have also been provided a third free pickup for 2020 from the CAPS program due to the cancellation of the annual Spring Fling Citywide Cleanup. Each additional collection is $20 for the first ton, and $45 per ton thereafter. Commercial customers are charged $45 per ton, or $15 for the first item, and $5 for each additional item picked up on the same day. There is a charge of $20 per item containing refrigerant (i.e., refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners).
Items scheduled for pickup must be placed curbside by 6 a.m. There needs at least 20-feet of overhead clearance for safe operation of the equipment.
CAPS pickup days are listed below:
Monday & Thursday - Brush
Cannot be mixed with trash, wood, paper, cans, bottles or wire.
CAPS picks up brush and grounds it to be recycled into compost. Brush must be cut 6-feet in length or less, and cannot be larger than 24-inches in diameter.
Tuesday & Friday - Miscellaneous
Cannot be mixed with household garbage, plastic bags, cardboard, paint, batteries or tires.
CAPS picks up miscellaneous items such as couches, mattresses, furniture, wood and building materials.
