Bulky Item Collection

At this time regularly weekly bulky item pick-up requests are not being accepted due to the current health crisis. Please do not place your items on the curb until scheduled. Currently, we’re assigning operating staff to priority waste pick up such as garbage. We will alert residents once scheduling resumes.


As of now, the free Spring Yard Waste Pick Up scheduled for April 6-May 1 and the Spring Cleaning Free Bulky Item Pick Up set for April 20-May 1 is still set to take place. If anything changes, we will update this web page and our Facebook page. Thank you for your cooperation and patience during this unprecedented time!

Collection of bulk items such as chairs, tables, mattresses, and carpet rolls is included in your service plan at an additional charge. Please contact us at 309-752-1573 to schedule your bulk item pickup.
