Bulky Waste Items
Please click the button to schedule a bulky
waste pickup and process your payment.
Residential bulk waste shall include refrigerators, washing machines, stoves, dishwashers, barbecue grills, small furniture, exercise equipment, and other similar large items.
Public Works will NOT collect batteries, tires, paint, chemicals, propane tanks, glass/mirrors, household hazard waste, concrete, bricks, roofing, antifreeze, dirt, vehicles, or vehicle parts.
Bulky waste collection service is not provided to residents who are located on private streets.
In addition to garbage and recycling pickup provided by Waste Management Services through a contract with the City, Spring Hill residents receive solid waste services that include yard waste and bulky item pickup. These services are currently subsidized out of the General Fund using internal employees and equipment from Public Works. Due to the rapid population growth, these services have continued to expand, and the financial resources required to support the operation have required a larger subsidy from the General Fund. These services require staff and equipment resources from the Department of Public Works for both collection and disposal.
The Board of Mayor and Alderman approved Rafetelis (Resolution 20-100) to conduct a financial planning study for the sanitation program. Based upon the results of the financial plan, the City needs to increase the fees charged to the residents or these services and establish a self-sufficient sanitation fund without utilizing subsidy from the General Fund. (please read the full resolution here).
Starting with the November statements, a $5.73 “City Services” fee will appear as a line-item charge in residents’ monthly bills. The purpose of the fee is to help cover the costs for services such as picking up leaves and tree limbs.
These services are not the same as the City’s resident-scheduled, bulk pick-ups of old couches, appliances, etc. But each is part of the sanitation policy update adopted by BOMA on September 6.
These items were covered previously by General Fund revenues. But BOMA believes such costs are more properly paid for by sanitation fees. There will be decreasing subsidies during the five-year glide path to the self-sustaining funding mechanism established by BOMA.
