PLEASE DO NOT PLACE ITEMS FOR THE COUNTY LARGE ITEM PICKUP AT THE ROADSIDE UNTIL THE DAY BEFORE YOUR PICKUP WILL BE HELD. IF THE COUNTY DOES NOT TAKE AN ITEM(S) YOU PLACED ON THE ROADSIDE, IT HAS BEEN REJECTED AND MUST BE DISPOSED OF AT YOUR EXPENSE. TAKE PRIDE IN YOUR HOME AND RESPECT YOUR NEIGHBORS.
