Bulky Items: Please remember that bulky items (ie: furniture) require special handling. Please use our online service request form, or call to schedule a pick-up.

Yard Waste: State law prohibits yard waste (leaves, hedge trimmings, etc) from being placed into the waste stream, and therefore cannot be colleted along with your normal household trash. When scheduling your yard waste collection with Pinard Waste Systems, please be sure that it is free of metal, food waste, stones, etc.
