Bulky items, including electronics that weigh more than 60 pounds, can be picked up at the curb. This service is available year-round, and appointments must be made with Red River at (712) 256-2288 prior to collection.
Each household is allowed 2 appliance and 2 bulky waste curbside pick-ups each year.
Set out your appliance and bulky waste items by 7:00 a.m. on your scheduled collection day. You may set them out as early as 7:00 p.m. the evening prior to collection appointment. There are no set times for collection the day of your appointment.
Bulky waste does not include regular household garbage.
Bulky waste must be contained to an area no larger than 8’ in length by 4’ in width by 4’ in height (the area of a full-size couch).
Doors on appliances need to be closed and secured shut for safety.
Items such as carpeting and boards should be cut into 4’ lengths and bundled with twine. Bundles should not exceed 2’ in diameter and 60 pounds in weight.
You must specify what items you are setting out when you arrange the pick-up appointment.
If you have large amounts of bulky waste items, you need to contract a commercial waste hauler to dispose of it for you. You can call the Council Bluffs Recycling Center to verify if a hauler is licensed in Council Bluffs.
If you would like more information about disposal of additional items, visit the Council Bluffs Recycling Center homepage for more disposal options or call the Loess Hills Regional Sanitary Landfill at (712) 624-8039.
