Yes. Both metal and non-metal bulky items require "Bulky Item" stickers. Stickers are available for $6 at the City Clerk's office (45 Beacon St. E Mon-Fri 8:30-4:30). Non-metal bulky items are collected on the normal trash day. Metal items are collected once a month; call DPW Office (528-6379) to register for pickup of metal bulky items. Freon-containing items (refrigerators, dehumidifiers, . . . ) are NOT ELIGIBLE for curbside pickup.
