Spring bulky item pick-up day for THURSDAY trash residents

If your trash day is Thursday, this is your free spring bulky item pick-up day

  • Date: 04/20/2018 (all day)

If your weekly trash pick-up is on Thursdays, you may place up to FIVE bulky items at your curb to be picked up for FREE on Friday, April 20.

If you would like to dispose of more than five items on April 20, you will need to contact Jim's and pay for the additional items two weeks in advance (by Friday, April 6) so the drivers will be able to plan accordingly and pick up the extra items. Jim's Disposal has an online payment form for bulky items here or you may call them at 816-408-0220 to make arrangements.

Counting items: A mattress and a box spring are considered to be TWO items. If residents disassemble items such a bed frames, they will need to bundle/tie the frame together or it will be counted as multiple items.

Please read the following lists of acceptable and non-acceptable items carefully.

Please make sure your bulky items are at the curb no later than 7 a.m. on Friday, April 20, in order to be picked up.
