Bulk Trash Rules at DPW Yard

Attention all residents – all non-commercial Linden residents are allowed to dump a limited amount of bulk trash. No construction debris. Household items, such as furniture and appliances are permitted. This convenience is offered to get rid of a few small items before your next scheduled bulk day. Residents are allowed to drop off items once a week. Please click here for an updated list of rules pertaining to bulk trash drop-offs.
