Each year the city's large item program serves one-half of the city. Using Antioch as the dividing line, it alternates east and west of Antioch. In 2014, it was conducted west of Antioch. More than 1.8 million pounds of material was collected at a cost of $93,672 in 2014.
This year it is for households east of Antioch.

You can set all items at the curb no later than 7 a.m. the day of pick up. Do not place items at the curb prior to the Friday before your collection date. Appliances may be collected separately from other items.
You can place up to two pickup loads of items in an orderly pile at the curb. Any excess will not be collected. Put out only those items not regularly collected by your trash service.
All loose items must be bundled. This includes wood scrap or drywall. Any loose items will not be picked up.
If you put out an appliance, secure the door to prevent any accidents.
Items that will be collected include:
- Car parts (no engines or fuel tanks)
- Railroad ties (four feet or less in length)
- Remodeling debris
Note: No tree limbs, brush or yard waste will be collected as part of this program. No exceptions.
In previous years, the city’s program for pickup of these items usually occurred in early spring, typically during March and April. Scheduling the event to avoid holidays, school spring vacations and collections that occur in other municipalities is often difficult. In 2014, one weekend overlapped with spring break and in 2013 the collections were held during June. Both prompted complaints from residents expressing displeasure with the scheduling.
If you have debris or trash that is not normally collected as part of your weekly curbside service that you need removed on a date other than your bi-annual pickup, contact your trash hauler and arrange a special collection. If you plan to haul it yourself, there are several disposal sites in the area. For more information, call 913-895-6270.
