Jefferson City residents looking to get rid of large, bulky trash will have the opportunity to do so for free on the next two Mondays.
Unable to pick up large items during regular trash routes, Jefferson City and Republic Services provide residential bulky item cleanup days each year.
Republic Services will split the pickup over two days. Items will be picked up from residences west of U.S. 54 on Sept. 28 and east of U.S. 54 on Oct. 5.
Items should be placed on the curb Sunday or no later than 5 a.m. on the day of the event.
Bulky items that will be picked up include furniture, large items two people can easily pick up, televisions, microwaves, tied bundles of scrap material under 4 feet and mattresses.
Items that will not be picked up include household trash, bags or boxes of debris, loose piles of material, remodeling material like sheet rock, appliances, car parts, tires, yard waste, lumber or guttering of more than 4 feet, rocks, bricks, concrete, household hazardous waste like paint or oil, flammable material or acid batteries.
Regular trash and recycling carts will be picked up on normal collection days. All small items that can fit in trash carts should be placed in the trash carts.
Residents can take household hazardous waste to the Cole County Household Hazardous Waste Facility on drop-off dates. The next is Oct. 7.
Republic Services will pick up bulky items any time during the year but requires residents to schedule the service for a fee.
The bulky item cleanup event is exclusively for residences with residential cart service through Republic Services within the city limits of Jefferson City.
Property owners are responsible for cleaning up any items left by Republic Services after Monday.
