The City of Piedmont is scheduled to have its spring curbside pickup the week of April 1 to 5 with normal trash pickup times.
Piedmont Municipal Authority (PMA) customers will be able to discard larger amounts of trash and waste materials.
Those items this year include heavy plastic sacks or bags of trash with a total weight not exceeding 35 pounds; furniture and other large, bulky waste items; all wood products, printed materials, paper, pasteboard, cardboard, rags, discarded clothing, shoes and boots; all waste materials generated by a residential customer when clearing, mowing edging and maintaining a yard, garden or other landscaped area to include tree trimming, grass cutting, dead plants, weeds, leaves or branches; trash, tree limbs, shrubs, brush trimmings, newspapers and magazines need to be securely tied together forming an easily handled package.
The city asks that all of the larger amounts of trash be placed in a four foot by four foot area and each bag or bundle must be 35 pounds or lighter.
The items the city will not pick up this year are construction debris, dead animals, hazardous waste, metal, mattresses, stable matter, oil and tires.
