Bulky Item Collection

Bulky Item Collection Overview

HHW Drop-Off Centers

Bulky item collection is provided to all City residential solid waste ratepayers. To find out if you are a solid waste customer, check your CPS Energy bill. If it lists a Solid Waste Fee, you are a customer and you are eligible to receive bulky item collection.

Collection Frequency

Bulky item collections are provided two times per year, approximately every six months.

Collection Schedule

Residents will receive a City flyer a week before bulky item collection in their area is scheduled to begin that will indicate the date by which their bulky items need to be set out for collection.

Bulky Pile Guidelines
  • Bulky item piles are limited to eight (8) cubic yards.
