Fall Bulky Item collection begins September 24

 GET RID OF YOUR JUNK BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 24 -   Address must be on pick up list by September 21  


September 24 is the first day of the City’s residential curbside Bulky/Large item pick-up.   Residential customers that are billed for garbage service by the City of Boerne are eligible for this special waste collection.  Waste Management crews will start picking up materials Monday and will pass down the street only once. 

To have your items picked up, you must register with the Utility Customer Service Office by calling 249-9511 between the hours of 8am and 5pm Monday through Friday or request a pick-up online at www.boerne-tx.gov at the Boerne Citizen Center page “Request a Service” link.

Customers will be required to remove any items that have been placed at the curb if they did not request the pick up by the deadline of Friday, September 21.

Items that will be picked up include old furniture, hot water heaters or other bulky house hold items such as mattresses and barbeque grills.  Any bulky items that contain any amount of glass, mirror or material that may shatter, will get picked up but only if it is wrapped and contained to prevent shards from harming the WM crew or littering the ground. 

Air conditioners, refrigerators and freezers will only be picked up if accompanied by a certificate from a licensed technician indicating that the Freon has been removed.  

It is also important to note that the city’s contract for this service with Waste Management, Inc. no longer includes collection of electronics of any kind.  Check with local vendors that sell electronics to see if they will accept these items.

Brush, trees, or landscape materials will not be picked up during this collection.  Please do not put out tires, batteries or paint cans for this collection.  These items should be taken to local businesses for recycling.  Contact the Utilities Customer Service Office for locations.

All items must be placed at the curb line in front of the residence; items will not be picked up from vacant lots or commercial establishments. Waste Management will pass down each street only once, so residential items must be out by Sunday, September 23. 

Since a mechanical grabber is used to remove the large items, DO NOT place materials under low utility lines, under low tree branches, or adjacent to fences, utility meters, telephone pedestals or fire hydrants.  Items placed in these restricted areas will not be picked up and the property owner will be responsible for removing those items.
