What is considered a "bulk Item?"
Large items that are over 30 pounds and longer than four feet in length (ex. appliances and furniture) are considered bulk items.
How much does it cost to have bulk items collected?
Curbside 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.
Ex. If there is a couch on the curbside plus a wooden vanity, the cost for both is $49.50.
To pay with any major credit card, call the CART office at 483-4400. To pay with cash visit the Treasurer's Office located on the first floor of City Hall.
How can I arrange for my bulk item(s) to be collected?
To arrange for pickup, call the CART office at (517) 483-4400.
Each individual piece counts as one bulk item. So like mentioned above, the couch and the wooden vanity are considered two separate items and therefore have a different cost.
Doors of refrigerators and freezers must be removed.
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 for more information at (517) 483-4121.*
