Sometimes things around the house can get a little bulky. We’re not talking about our waistlines after Thanksgiving dinner but about the stuff we collect over the years that can’t be thrown out in the weekly trash pickup. Have you ever tried to toss out a sofa? It’s not easy. Here in Columbus the Department of Sanitation can help with a bulky pickup but that’s not going to be easy either.
The first step for scheduling a bulk-collection pickup with the city will require you to call their City Service Center. This will take you through a maze of telephone prompts that may or may not land you with an actual human. You could try scheduling an appointment through the city’s website but there is no guarantee anyone is going to be answering that email anytime soon especially with all the budget cuts.
There are also very specific rules when it comes to leaving stuff by your curb. Here are just a few: “If your regular trash is picked up at the curb, place bulk items in front of your home away from obstructions on your specially scheduled collection day. If your regular trash is picked up in an alley, place bulk items on the edge of your property at the alley line on your specially scheduled collection day. Roll carpet into a bundle 4 feet long by 2 feet in diameter and tie it with rope. Leave furniture assembled. Glass must be removed from bulk items, placed in a box, taped and marked glass. Residents are responsible for cleaning up any glass residue that may remain on the ground in front of their home as a result of collection. Smaller bulk items must be placed in boxes. Plastic or metal trash cans placed out with a bulk collection will be collected for disposal.” All of this makes it feel like you’ll be packing up your junk like you were moving.
Then there is the issue of getting it out to the curb in the first place. In many cases, that simply isn’t feasible. The city will pick up things like furniture or mattresses. However, if you are hoping to toss out stuff like auto parts, tires, construction waste, refrigerators, hot tubs, pool tables, pianos, spars, water coolers or air conditioners you can forget it! The city won’t be picking those things up. So, who can you turn to for a complete junk removal? That would be Junk King of Columbus.
