Mayor Mark Explains Bulk Debris Pickup Request

What’s with the pink tags?

To have bulk debris or green waste picked up curbside, one needs to make a request of our waste hauler, Coastal Environmental Services. This can easily be done using their Customer Care online form or by telephone (833-243-8237).

Many in our community believe trucks routinely pass by randomly picking up debris. This is not the case. Drivers are given a list of requested piles. Hence, they will pick up one pile, but drive right past another. If they were to add the unrequested piles to their load, they would lack capacity at the end of their route.

After requesting a pick-up, it should take about one week. If not removed in seven days, contact Coastal with a reminder. If not done in ten days, notify me via e-mail.
