Bulky Item Trash Pickup is Now ‘Stickerless’

Effective as of Monday, July  9, residents no longer need to visit the Inspectional Service Department during City Hall hours to schedule a trash pickup for their “bulky items.”

Traditionally, city ordinance requires stickers to be purchased in advance for the removal of bulky items such as mattresses, furniture and other enumerated items. Residents no longer will need a sticker to have items picked up and can now schedule the pickup online at

Residents can go the city web site and after creating an account, navigate to “Apply for a Permit” with the type “Bulk Item Pickup.” After completing the application, residents will receive an email with a date and time the items will be picked up.

Applications must be completed by 2 p.m. the day before a Tuesday through Friday pickup, or 10 a.m. on Friday for a Monday pickup. Otherwise your items may be scheduled for the following week.

For residents who do not have access to a computer or smart phone, applications can be submitted in-person at Inspectional Service’s computer kiosk located on 249R Broadway. The Mayor’s 311 Constituent Services is ready to answer any questions residents may have as the City transitions to this “stickerless” program.
