Scheduling bulk pickup is easy, free


With the season of unwrapping and unpackaging at an end, there is no need to wait for a community-wide clean-up event to get rid of bulky items. Now is as good a time as any to take advantage of the city's bulk trash pick-up services.

According to city officials, Gonzales residents are eligible for four bulk pickups per year. The service is just a quick call away.

By calling Texas Disposal Systems and scheduling a bulk pickup, residents can have bulky items carried away for free.

Bulky Items include: appliances such as refrigerators, stoves, freezers and dishwashers; furniture such as beds, sofas, chairs, tables, dressers and chests, as well as any other large item not fitting in a curbside trash container, such as area rugs, large blinds and curtain rods.

Items not eligible for pickup include: construction materials such as lumber, carpet, tiles, pipes; and items such as paint cans, tires, batteries and car parts.

By scheduling a bulk pickup many problems can be avoided, such as unsightly curbs, nesting vermin and snakes, as well as code enforcement violations.
