Detroit to resume bulk trash pickup

After eliminating monthly bulk trash pickup due to budgetary constraints, Detroit plans to restore bulk collection on a quarterly basis beginning Oct. 1. According to the Detroit Free Press, the move was a response to fears that eliminating the service would compromise public health and lead to a spike in illegal dumping. Sanitation workers will collect large items (up to one cubic yard, the size of a large refrigerator) from residents four times a year.
