The city’s annual bulky item pick-up begins March 1 and will run through Sept. 3. Collection crews will go through the city street by street, collecting bulky items that garbage crews cannot accept. Furniture, mattresses, appliances, grills, carpet, old toys and lawn furniture can all be set out.

The city cannot collect televisions, computer equipment, building materials, hazardous waste, tires, cement, cars and car parts, stumps, tanks and oil drums, fire wood or yard waste. Do not mix bulky items with recyclables or brush.

Bulky item collection is for single family residences, not businesses or apartments. The Sanitation Division will mail post cards in advance to let home owners know when bulky item collection will be held in their neighborhood. Crews will go through each neighborhood only once. To ensure collection, items must be at the curb by 6 a.m. the Monday of your collection week.

To find out your collection week, go to and click on the link for online address lookup. Residents without computer access can call CityLink at 311 or 336-727-8000 and a CityLink agent will look up the collection date.
