Bulk Item Collection Cost
Collection of bulk items is $33.00 for the first item. If there is more than one item being picked up during the same stop, it is an additional $16.50 per item. For example, if there is a couch on the curbside plus a wooden vanity, the total cost for both is $49.50.
To pay with any major credit card, call the CART office. To pay with cash, visit the Treasurer's Office located in City Hall (124 W. Michigan Ave. - First Floor).
If you have a bulk item(s) that needs to be picked up, call the CART office to make an arrangement.
Each individual piece counts as one bulk item. Like mentioned in the example above, the couch and the wooden vanity are considered two separate items; therefore, they have a different cost. The initial item would cost $33.00 and the second item along with any additional items would be an extra $16.50 each.
Doors of refrigerators and freezers must be removed in order to be picked up.
There are not any refunds for collected bulk items.
*Households that meet income qualifications can receive one free bulk sticker per year. Please call the Treasurer's Office at 517-483-4121 for additional information.
