Free Bulk Item Hauling

As part of Creston's service agreement with Waste Management, every home in town is entitled to dispose of one free bulk item each week.  Be sure to take advantage of this service as needed, on your regular collection day - just set your one item by your trash cart. Bulk items can include furniture, bicycles, windows, doors, televisions and many items safely handled by one person.  Not included are construction or demolition debris, concrete, bricks, vehicle parts, hazardous wastes, appliances, etc.  Also, remember that grass, leaves, brush, etc. do NOT belong in the trash or recycling containers but can instead be taken to the City Compost Site on Osage Street.  Click here for hours.  Thanks for helping keep Creston beautiful!

For trash items that require more than one person to handle, requests for pickup can be completed by calling Waste Management at 641-782-6707.
