Bulk Waste Collection

Some large items cannot be thrown away because they are too big to fit in your trash container. Bulk pickup is provided one Friday monthly (find your scheduled pickup on the Interactive Public Works Services Map). Residents must schedule bulk pickups in advance by calling the City's Customer Service Call Center 937-333-4800 or online.
