Bulk item

MMWA residents are allowed up to two bulk items per week. Bulk items should be placed at the curb, along with other properly prepared materials, no later than 7:00 am on your regular service day. MMWA does not schedule bulk pick-up in advance. The trash driver is responsible for collecting your properly prepared bulk item and getting it scheduled for pick up. If the truck is full, or the driver is not able to collect the item by himself, the driver should be placing an orange (WM communities) or yellow (Priority Waste communities) sticker on the material marking the box that reads item pick up scheduled do NOT remove from the curb. The bulk truck runs 1-2 business days behind the regular trash truck. For example, if you have a Monday collection day, your items should be collected by the bulk truck by the end of the day on Wednesday. If your item was tagged for collection and is not picked up by the end of the second business day, please give us a call.

If your bulk item does not have an orange (WM communities) or yellow (Priority Waste communities) sticker, please call either on your collection day or within one business day of your collection day. That is our window of time to look into it.

You can find preparation instructions for most items by using MMWA’s “What Do I Do With it?” search engine on our homepage. If you are still unsure, call MMWA at (989) 781-9555 before you put your bulky item to the curb.
