Bulky Item Pickup

Each year the city provides a bulky item pickup for items not picked up by curbside trash removal service.

Bulky Item Pickup serves half of the City each year, with Antioch as the dividing line.

This program serves single through four-plex households with individual trash service. Communities with dumpster-style trash service are not included in the program.

Please have your bulky trash items at the curb no later than 7 a.m. the day of, but no sooner than 5 p.m. the day before your scheduled pickup date.

September 11 Pickup Delays

If your pickup is Saturday, Sept. 11, we ask for your patience and understanding, as we expect it to take more than a single day. 

Waste Management, the contractor for this annual City-paid program, is experiencing a staffing shortage, which means fewer employees to assist.

If your items, which are limited to five, are not removed on Saturday, please leave them at the curb. Waste Management will resume activities on Monday, Sept. 13, and expects to have all items removed on or before Saturday, Sept. 18. 

Special Note: This does not impact pickup of mattresses. Those will be retrieved by a separate company on Friday, Sept. 10.

We will continue to monitor this special program, work with Waste Management and provide the latest information to the community on the progress of crews.
