Residential Curbside Bulky Item Collection Flyer

The Solid Waste Division can assist you with your special waste disposal needs. Any item that does not fit into your regular solid waste container (automated, commercial bin or can), and is not considered a banned item (i.e., hazardous waste), can be collected from your curbside for disposal for a fee.

The fee for this special service is as follows: $41.92 for the first item, and $20.96 for each additional item.
Residential customers receive two free bulky item pickups per year with up to three items per collection.

Solid waste crews cannot go inside of a building or residence to collect special haul items. Bulky item special hauls must be scheduled in advance, with the material ready for collection on the agreed day.

Many times your waste is someone else's treasure. Before you consider disposing of it, why not try to recycle it first? The Solid Waste Division's Customer Service Representatives are happy to assist you with referral sources for hundreds of every-day household items that are recyclable. Call us at 798-7529 for assistance.
