If you live in a Multi-Family Dwelling:
Apartment buildings, duplexes, triplexes, and other buildings with groups of independent households.
If you live in a multi-family dwelling and are interested in having a large item picked up, please work with your property manager who can coordinate the “twice yearly” pick up for your building.
