All requests received before 4:30 p.m. on Tuesdays of each week will be picked up on Wednesdays.   Callers will be asked to provide their name, address, daytime phone number and type of metal item(s) to be picked up.  ITEMS MUST BE OUT (IN DRIVEWAY OR BY GARAGE) BY 8 A.M. WEDNESDAY.  DO NOT PUT ITEMS ON THE BERM.
