Next Bulky Trash Day is 02/18/2019.
Bulky waste, including carpets, furniture, appliances* general landscape waste and other specialized items, is picked up monthly. Make sure all bulk waste is placed on the curbside, no later than 6 a.m. on your scheduled monthly pick-up day. Crews make take up to three (3) days to get to the bulk waste, but any and all waste must be put on out the assigned day in order in order for it to be picked up.
Almost any big junk or debris that won’t fit in your Big Blue can be collected as part of the City's monthly bulk waste program. Bulk waste collection is included as part of your regular trash and recycling services.
When is my bulk waste pick-up day?
Your bulky waste pick-up day is generally around the same week and day each month (i.e. first Monday, second Tuesday, third Friday, etc.). However, the exact date may differ since we do not start bulky service until the first full week of the month, starting on a Monday. It's best to always check our pick-up calendar to confirm your collection date, or look on your most recent Utility bill.
What about holidays?
There is no holiday schedule for bulk waste pick-up. Collection follows the regular bulk schedule as listed on your utility bill.
When should I set out my bulk waste?
Set out your bulky trash no later than 6 a.m. on your assigned monthly pick-up date. Please allow up to three days for crews to pick everything up.
You can set it out as early as three days prior to your assigned day, but not earlier.
Do I pay extra for bulk waste?
The first four cubic yards (about the size of two refrigerators or six clothes dryers) are included in your monthly service fee. Customers who place more than that amount may be charged for additional waste.
Where do I place my bulky waste?
Place your bulky waste on the curb and not in the street. Leave about 5 feet of space on all sides, and do not place bulky waste near mailboxes, trees, electric boxes, gas meters, power lines or other obstacles. Also, make sure there are no cars parked in front of the pile on your bulky pick-up day or crews may not be able to get to it.
