* Construction debris, drywall, rocks, sod, concrete, dirt and similar items are not eligible for bulk pickup. If you are having services provided by a contractor, you must arrange with the contractor for removal of debris, or take the items to the landfill.
** Special EPA rules apply for any appliances containing Freon. Before the items can be collected, the Freon must be removed by a certified technician who will then place a sticker on the item stating that is Freon free. The Town of Leesburg does not provide references to contractors providing this service. You may wish to contact a refrigeration repair provider to inquire if they offer such services. If the appliance does not have this sticker, it CANNOT be collected.
*** Tree limbs and branches cannot be picked up as bulk pickup. If you have smaller tree limbs, place in brown paper yard waste bags for collection on your designated yard waste day. For branches too large for bags or cans, but under 8 feet in length and 6 inches in diameter, these can be collected with regular brush collection.[/fusion_text]
