Bulk Waste Pickup Calendar 2023

The City provides curbside collection of bulk items including construction and demolition debris from renovation or home improvement projects from residential units, excluding natural disaster-related clean-ups.

Place your bulky item at the curb by 7 a.m. on your regularly scheduled service day. Each pick-up should not exceed one (1) cubic yard. This does not include permitted construction projects.

Acceptable and Unacceptable Items for Bulk Pickup

Please use the Be Cart Smart tool, click on the Cart Smart tab, type the name of an item and we’ll tell you how to recycle or dispose of your bulk items.

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 Sarasota and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
