Galesburg residents with household items damaged due to flooding will have an easier time disposing of oversized refuse with an expanded refuse pick up next week.

Oversized items such as furniture, mattresses, and large appliances will be picked up free of charge at the curb on residents' regular solid waste pick up day next week -- April 29 through May 3, 2013.

Carpeting will need to be cut and bundled into rolls with twine or tape and can weigh no more than 50 lbs. and be 5 ft. in length.

All other refuse is required to be properly contained in garbage bags or cans and weigh no more than 50 lbs. Electronic items are not accepted at the landfill and will need to be taken to the Electronics Recycling Center located at Waste Management, 1360 S. Henderson Street.

The expanded refuse pick up will not begin until next week in order to give residents ample opportunity to take advantage of the service. The expanded pick up will last only one week.

Any oversized items already at the curb will not be picked up free of charge until the week of April 29.

Remember:

  • No limit to the number of bags, cans or bundles at the curb
  • All refuse that is not considered oversized must be contained in bags, cans or bundled and weigh less than 50 lbs.
  • 5 ft. limit on bundles
  • Bundles may be made with twine or tape
  • Carpet must be cut and bundled and be less than 50 lbs. and 5 ft. in length
  • Cardboard boxes as a container will not be picked up
  • Cardboard boxes broken down and bundled are acceptable and will be picked up as refuse (or recycled for those on the even recycling weeks)

Examples of items included in the expanded pick up week include: couch, recliner, refrigerator, freezer, bookcase, water heater, washer/dryer, coffee table, mattress/box springs.

For answers to questions about this special expanded refuse pick up, contact the Community Development Department at 309/345-3614 or Waste Management at 309/343-0256.
