Large-Item Pick-Up

 The City of Leavenworth has 2 separate pick-ups for large items. On your regular trash day the City will pick up most large non-metal items such as furniture, hide-a-beds, television consoles, mattresses & box springs and also small metal items such as bicycles, small grills, and push mowers that are empty of fluids. Some of these items will be thrown in the truck by the collection crews and some of them will be collected later by a grapple truck. The crew will note any addresses where they leave a non-metal bulk item and it will be collected later that same day or no later than the end of the next business day by a grapple truck. You can call 682-0650 ahead of time and schedule your pick-up although it is not necessary.
The City collects all metal appliances and other large metal items such as riding lawn mowers or metal desks on Fridays. You must call 682-0650 no later than 3:00 p.m. on Thursdays to get on the Friday list. Your large metal items must be on the curb by 7:00 a.m. Friday morning. All items must by empty of debris such as food or clothing , any liquids must be drained, doors must be removed or securely taped shut, and tall items must be laid down flat on the door.
For both types of collection, please make sure the items placed on the curb are away from any vehicles parked on the street and ensure that adequate space for our equipment to pick up the items is available. Remember, no matter what item is placed on the curb for collection, nothing is to be out more than 24 hours prior to the collection day per City code.
