  • Do not place material at the curb after crews have passed by your house.
  • Tree debris must be less than 5 ft in length and less than 13 inches in diameter.

Unacceptable Items for Bulk Pickup

  • Household hazardous waste
  • Construction and demolition debris
  • Tires

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in Memphis and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
