Bruderheim's second large item pickup of the year will be underway tomorrow.
 
Residents can leave items at their curbside by 7:00 a.m. for waste contractor Green For Life (GFL) to haul away.
 
"I know it's a valuable service for lots of folks, they take advantage of that, the people that might not have a pickup truck," said mayor Karl Hauch. "This is an excellent way to help them out."
 
The town and GFL are both asking residents to put a note on items they want picked up to avoid taking the wrong hockey net or bicycle.
 
They'll pick up a maximum of two items that are less that 1.8 metres by 0.9 metres and less than 90 kilograms each.
 
Houses with back alleys should have their large items at the front of their property for pick up.
 
GFL has a list of things they will pick up, including stoves, mattresses and box springs, toilets, barbecues and machines like snow blowers.
 
It's important to note that all fluids must be drained from any machine out for collection.
 
All items placed for collection might not be collected by the same truck as GFL will have a variety out for different items.
 
When possible, some items collected might be sent for recycling.
 
A list of items that won't be picked up is available here.
 
The town runs the pick up twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring.
