Once-a-week pickup on tap for some debris
Starting July 4, the city will start picking up furniture, appliances, large tree trimmings and other bulk debris items once a week instead of the current schedule of twice a week. The change does not apply to automated "green" barrels or recycling containers and it affects residential customers only. The new schedule is part of the city's green initiative to reduce fuel consumption and costs. Visit DunedinGov.com or call (727) 298-3215, ext. 21 for more information.
