Bulk Item Pick-up or Drop-off

Bulk Items

"Bulk items" are any single item that is too large to fit in your garbage cart with the lid shut. There are some exclusions (see below).

Cost per Item

Bulk Items cost $15 each to dispose of, whether you have them picked up or you haul them yourself.

Scheduled Pick-up

Bulk Item pick-up is available to all residents whose properties are located within the city limits of Stevens Point.

  • To have bulk items collected at curbside, you must pay and arrange for pick-up of the item.
  • If you pay online  by Midnight Sunday, pick-up will be scheduled for the following Monday.
  • If we are closed on Monday, pick-up will be on Tuesday.
  • You can pay for pick-up at the Comptroller/Treasurer’s Office, or

  • Bulk items cannot be placed on the curb/street until 6:00 pm the night before the pick-up, or they may be placed on the curb/street the morning of pick-up prior to 7:00 am.
  • Place your bulk item in the same area as your City garbage cart, making sure you do not block the sidewalk.  If you do not have a City garbage cart or live in an area that has a dumpster, the item must be placed at the curb/street.

Pink Slip/Courtesy Notice

If your item was tagged with a pink slip/courtesy notice for being a code violation, you need to remove the item from the location it was tagged within 24 hours, even if you purchase and schedule a pick-up.  If you received such a notice and do not remove the item within 24 hours, the item will be picked up by a contractor and you will receive an invoice for the contractor’s time and service.  Contact the Neighborhood Improvement Coordinator with any questions.
