    City of Gainesville residents  with curbside service can call the  Solid Waste Division  at 334-2330  for a bulk pickup (no charge).  White  goods (appliances) are picked up only on Wednesday inside the City limits so call at  least 24 hrs. in advance to insure getting scheduled, otherwise you will have to wait until the following  Wednesday.

    Replaced 2 toilets, got rid of old ones and bought new that use less water. Definitely worth it
