Bulky item collection


In 2021, the city approved a new plan for handling bulky waste items in a more sustainable way than the Curbside Cleanup program of the past. The purpose behind the new program and the activities listed below is to reuse and recycle more and landfill less.

A monthly fee is charged to all households in the city’s garbage and recycling program for these bulky item collection services. The fee is called “Bulky Item Management Fee” on your Utility Bill and replaces the Curbside Cleanup Fee.  Your Utility Bill reflects two months of service.

Curbside Cleanup

Curbside Cleanup is held every other year on even years only. 

During Curbside Cleanup, residents can place limited amounts of appliances, scrap metal, bulky trash, and brush at their curb on an assigned Saturday for collection.

How it works: Bloomington Curbside Cleanup

Monthly collection of reusable and recyclable bulky items

The City is partnering with Better Futures Minnesota to collect bulky reusable and recyclable items at the curb in an effort to reduce the number of these items that end up going to a landfill.  Households with City garbage and recycling service can schedule a monthly pick up of reusable and recyclable items like those listed below.   Items will be picked up the first full week of each month, on the regular garbage and recycling day.  There is no extra cost for these items to be picked up. Service is included in the monthly Bulky Item Management Fee on the residential Utility Bill. 

Since this is a new program, the City is hoping to learn about how this process works and what items households have for reuse and recycling.  This also means that we may need to slightly alter the program guidelines as we learn more.
