Bulk Trash Service
Once a month, the Cleburne Sanitation Department will have trucks that will come by your house to collect bulky items. It is not necessary to notify the Sanitation Department that you have items out.
This service is free of charge once a month for households. Bulk items put out at anytime other than their designated time will result in the items be picked up and owners being automatically charged.
How Much and What Can Be Set Out
- Bulky item pick up is limited to 10 cubic yards (about eight feet long, six feet wide, and six feet tall.
- Bulk items are any items that cannot fit into your garbage cart. Items that can be broken down will not be taken.
- Items too large for the trash cart, such as a sofa, stove, hot water heater, mattress, box springs, are considered bulk.
When to Set Out Bulk
- Bulk may only be set out between the times of 5:00 p.m. Friday the week before and 7:00 a.m. Monday the week of the owner’s scheduled bulk waste collection.
- Due to the size of bulk it takes the City the entire week to pick up all of the bulk items for that week's designated area.
- Your bulk week each month will correspond the day of the week your trash is picked up. See the GIS viewer at the bottom of the page to see your address and designated week.
