WHAT IS BULKY WASTE?
Bulky waste items are often difficult for citizens to properly dispose of due to their large size or the hazardous nature of some components. Examples include furniture, mattresses, appliances, electronics, etc. Improper disposal of these items can cause potential injury or pollution such as the release of heavy metals, carcinogens or refrigerants into our local environment. Proper disposal of these items reduces these risks.
HOW TO DISPOSE OF BULKY WASTE MATERIAL GENERATED BY A HOUSEHOLD
IF YOU LIVE INSIDE CITY LIMITS:
Citizens who live inside a municipality (inside city limits) may have curbside collection of bulky waste available through their city’s waste hauling contract. If included, the service is usually free and items will be picked up at the curb in front of your home. Contact your city’s waste hauler or the City Administration office directly for more information. If you are unsure of who your city waste hauler is, click here for a list.

DISTRICT CURBSIDE PICKUP PROGRAM
The District offers a curbside pickup program for bulky items from households for a transportation fee of $40.00 for the first item and $5.00 for each additional individual item. Every separate bulky item will be accessed a separate fee. We do not consider items as "sets" including mattresses, table and chairs, etc. Extremely large or heavy items which cannot be picked up by one person will require additional fees.
Bulky pickup routes typically run each Thursday but may be affected by District closings for holidays or weather.
Advance payment is required. Citizens may pay in person by cash, check or credit or debit card or over the phone with credit or debit card. Sales tax and credit card processing fees will apply.
To make arrangements for a pickup, please call the District office at (479) 795-0751. Please note: Refunds are not given for Bulky Service fees unless you cancel at least one day before your scheduled day of pick up. You may not cancel on the date of service.
