Bulky waste curbside clean up begins on September 19 for residents in the East voting district, and it will look a little different than previous years. The cost of the curbside collection program has more than doubled in the past five years. To reduce costs, the City Council agreed to set limits on the amount of material collected. Changes include:
- General junk and household building materials: Pile limited to ONE level truck bed (Generally 4’ x 8’ x 2’).
- Unusable furniture: Limit TWO.
- Mattresses or box springs: Limit TWO.
- Appliances: Limit TWO
You may place out items from all of these categories.
Items exceeding limits will be left behind by the hauler. Residents will need to arrange and pay for separate disposal.

How it works
Simply set your items out before 7 a.m. on collection day, or up to two days before, and trucks will come down your street to pick up your items. No need to schedule an appointment. Place appliances on one side of your driveway and bulky household waste on the other. Small items should be boxed or bagged. Do not place items in your garbage or recycling containers. Drain all fluids from items.
Trucks will only go through your area once—no return trips.
What items are accepted?
Many residential waste items are accepted from appliances to general household items. See more about accepted and unaccepted items on our Recycling Events page.
