Livermore Sanitation offers qualified residents to call and put out overflow garbage three times a year. Additionally an appliance or e-waste item maybe picked up at no charge with advanced reservation.
I am surprised to learn when clients are preparing his or her homes for sale they have never utilized this service. One neighborhood I sold a home in several years ago, organized a neighborhood rotating weekly pick-up utilizing the entiteld pick-ups so there was an opportunity of dumping something curbside every week somewhere in the neighnorhood. Try it in yours!
