Leaving Large Items for Rubbish Removal
Large items such as refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, hot water tanks, furniture, etc. will be picked up on regularly scheduled pickup days.
Be sure to remove refrigerator and freezer doors and any other locking appliance doors. Freon must be removed from refrigerators, freezers and other appliances that may contain freon. Contact a local plumbing service to assist with the certified removal of the freon gas. The appliance will then be tagged for removal by the technician. KIMBLE will only pick up appliances after they have been tagged by the technician that the freon has been removed.
Kimble requires that residents tape an X across glass windows, glass mirrors, patio doors etc. in duct tape to help prevent the glass from shattering during trash collection. Your consideration is appreciated!
Kimble Guidelines For Upholstered Items
Due to emergence of bedbugs throughout all areas of Ohio, upholstered furniture, mattresses, box springs and rolled up carpet must be wrapped in plastic and tightly taped with duct tape. If not prepared as indicated, the items will be left at the curb. If tagged for non-compliance, and after wrapping the item as directed, residents may then call Kimble at 800-201-0005 to schedule a pickup.
When to Place Trash Containers on the Curb
