There Was a Glitch – May Bulk Trash Pickup Clarified

Recently the City announced that there would be bulk trash pickup on every Thursday during the month of May. Unfortunately there was a misunderstanding between John’s Disposal and City staff. Per John’s, in prior years the extra bulk pickups have only been scheduled around the student housing near campus.

We are sorry for the inconvenience to those residents who put items out for the May 7 pickup that were not picked up. Obviously the terrace lawns would look nicer if it’s not too much trouble to take the items back until the citywide pickup on May 14. If, however, that is inconvenient, no fines will be issued for items that are left out until the 14th.

The bulk pickup on May 21 will again only be campus focused. May 28 will be an all city pickup.

Apologies for the confusion on this matter.

Brad Marquardt
Department of Public Works Director
