WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) Wausau’s large-item pick-up program starts today.
It’s the one time of year that the city accepts old furniture and other items that are otherwise too big to throw in the garbage. Collection goes from neighborhood to neighborhood. It takes nearly two weeks to cover the entire city. The program runs today through May 6th.
There are some items that are not accepted. They include yard waste, electronic items, commercial construction debris, hazardous materials like paints and chemicals, and regular trash.
A listing of neighborhood pick-ups and restricted items is posted at the city’s web site:
