program will be designed to be easier to use, less confusing

|Electronic Waste and Refrigerator Collection Information|
Electronic waste (E-waste) is an item such as a computer
monitor, television, cell phone or other like materials.
Due to the high amounts of lead and chemicals found in E-waste,
they are not allowed into local landfills.
Refrigerators contain Freon and other chemicals which require special handling as well. CR&R will collect these items from your curbside as part of our bulky item collection program. To arrange for curbside pick-up of E-Waste or a refrigerator, please call our Customer Service Department at 800-755-8112 for limitations, rates and further information.
|Bulky Items Collection Information|
|Items that cannot fit in your automated containers, such as a chair, table or a couch are considered "bulky items." A bulky item is an object that can be handled safely by a two-person crew and may include washers, dryers, sofas or other large materials. Each residential unit or home is entitled to two (2) bulky item pick-ups free of charge per calendar year. Limitations apply and further information can be obtained by calling our Customer Service Department. You may call our office at 800-755-8112 to arrange for additional bulky item collections for a nominal charge.|
