Preparing and Scheduling a Bulky Pickup

 

Preparation and scheduling of a bulky pickup consists of four steps:

  • Check the Bulky Collection Schedule. Click here to see when your subdivision is scheduled for bulky trash pickup. If you do not have a subdivision name, check for the street name.
  • Determine what you want picked up. Keep in mind that tires, paints, liquids, car batteries or anything hazardous are not allowed. Items longer than 8 feet are not accepted. Only hot water heaters and stoves are acceptable. Other white goods such as refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers, air conditioners, washers, dryers, furnaces, and dishwashers can only be picked up on White Goods Monday for a fee. The entire pickup cannot be greater than what would fill one back of a pick-up truck bed. 
  • Prepare your items:
      • Stoves – latched doors should be removed.
      • Glass Doors/Windows – Make a big "X" from corner to corner across the glass with duct tape. Place the glass in front of or on top of all other items so the driver can definitely see that there is glass to be picked up. This prevents the glass being shattered on the lawn or driveway.
      • Lawn Mowers – Drain gasoline and oil.
      • Brush/Limbs – Place in a separate pile from all other items because a separate truck picks them up after everything else is picked up. If any of the limbs are bigger than 6 inches in diameter, they need to be put in a separate pile from the smaller pieces. No brush/limbs can be any longer than 8 feet.
  • Place items at the curb no later than 6:30 a.m. the day of the pickup, and no earlier than 6 p.m. the night before the pickup. Everything must be placed a minimum of 3 to 4 feet away from any obstructions such as cars, mailboxes, or trees so the automatic arm has room to maneuver safely when picking up your items.

Off-Schedule Bulky Pickups

If you have items you want to dispose of immediately or do not want to wait until your scheduled bulky pickup, you have two options:

 

  • Bring your bulky items to Recycle City at 131 Ecology Drive. There is a charge for this service See Walk-ins. Hours are Monday through Friday (7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.) and Saturday (8 a.m.-2 p.m.).
  • Schedule a fee-based, Friday off-schedule bulky pick-up. The cost is a minimum of $50 for up to four cubic yards of bulky. Four yards is equivalent to what will fit in the back of a large pick-up truck bed. The fee will be added to your utility bill. Schedule no later than Thursday at noon to have pick up on Friday by calling 636.970.1456 OR click here to schedule online.
