Bulky item pickup made according to schedule

The City collects bulky items (items that weigh more than 50 pounds or are larger than 4 feet long) from single-family homes and multi-family dwellings with up to six units. Bulky items should be placed at the curb after 3 p.m. the day before scheduled collection, and before 7 a.m. the day of pickup. They should not be placed under trees or power lines.

“Everyone benefits when citizens properly dispose of waste such as bulky items,” said Michael Shaw, manager of the Solid Waste Division of the Public Works Department. “It makes our neighborhoods safer, cleaner places where people want to live and care for their homes, which helps maintain and even increase property values.”

Acceptable bulky items include: furniture; large appliances (hot water heaters, stoves, refrigerators, and air conditioners); disassembled swing sets, fencing and lawn mowers; plumbing fixtures; cabinets; windows with the glass removed; doors; carpet; and glass panes and mirrors with a large “X” of masking tape across them.

Bulky items that are NOT acceptable include:

    Regular household trash, loose or scattered debris

    Waste materials from a business or building materials resulting from remodeling, construction, or demolition

    Closed drums or fuel tanks

    Leaves, brush, grass clippings and stumps

    Household hazardous waste, including antifreeze, batteries, brake fluid, paint, gasoline. To properly dispose of these items, call the Household Hazardous Waste Center, (816) 784-2080.

Before putting a bulky item on the curb, citizens are urged to find out when bulky items are collected in their area by visiting, or calling a customer service representative, (816) 513-3490.
