Garbage disposal

In the summer I was told by the Aldermans office that if I have stuff other than routine garbage (rugs, couch, tables, mattress etc). I was told to give them a few days advance notice. When I recently called, they now say that this stuff is no longer picked up and I would have to hire a private company. Does anyone else have this problem? I took rugs out and I don't know what to do with them.

  • paul in jefferson jefferson park resident

    Arena gave the right answer, thanks Katiie.
