Give us your feedback on bulk item collection options

Waste Management Truck

Last year, the City made changes to bulk item collection as a part of broader efforts to promote cleaner streets and neighborhoods. Over the past year, we've heard feedback about those changes and have explored options to increase bulk collection frequency and improve the appearance of the city. Read the summary below and use the survey tool to share your thoughts on the new option for bulk item collection.

What is Bulk item collection?

Bulk items include residential trash that is too large for a container, such as appliances, furniture, or fence panels. It does not include brush/green waste, construction debris, or hazardous waste.

Current service level:

  • Bulk items are collected once per month from the front curb on the same week as brush pickup.
  • Items should be set out by Monday of the pickup week and will be collected by Friday.
  • Bulk items are limited to 4 cubic yards per collection (roughly equivalent to 2 couches or large appliances).
  • Residents may schedule one additional free collection per month through Waste Management.

Potential new bulk item collection service:

  • Bulk items would be collected once per week on the day of the resident's regular trash collection.
  • Items would be set out and collected on the same day.
  • Bulk items are limited to 2 cubic yards per collection (roughly equivalent to a couch or large appliance).
  • Service delivery would increase from once per month to four times per month,
  • This option would cost each single family residence an additional $2.34 per month (about $0.59 per week) because of the higher frequency of collection and increase in potential volume of collection.
  • The discounted senior rate would not be impacted by this change and would remain the same.
