Please place them away from the other large items at your collection point and cover if rain is in the forecast. Harter's Quick Clean-Up is the contractor for this collection. If you have questions on specific items you can reach them at 608-782-2082, 

Collection will be limited to 5 items per tax parcel. Items shall not be set out more than 12 hours before collection and the property owner is responsible for removal of items placed out once pickup is complete for the season. Electronics and appliances are not allowed to be placed for collection.

Large Item Disposal

Large items are no longer picked up as a city-serviced collection, this also includes items left illegally on your property. Items that are too large or heavy to fit in your garbage cart, are considered a large item. These include couches, cabinets, desks, carpet, tables. It is the resident's responsibility to dispose of large items either by calling a contractor of your choosing, or hauling to a drop-off location such as Harter's Quick Clean Up or the County Landfill.

Disposal Options:

If items are reusable, connect with donation centers.  Some places will pick up your reusable items.  Here are a few suggestions.
