City of Yukon Offers Curbside Big Trash Day in April
Just in time for your Spring cleaning, all residential customers will receive a one-time free curbside bulk pickup during the week of April 19 through April 23. Your bulk pickup will occur on your normal trash day. Residents may start placing acceptable items at the curb no earlier than 6:00pm on Friday, April 16.

During the designated time period, place your big trash at your curb for pickup on your normal trash day.
Acceptable items we can pick up at the curb:

- Fence panels and other large items must be cut down into four (4) feet by four (4) feet pieces.
- Glass and mirrors will be picked up if they are boxed or wrapped securely and clearly marked with the word “glass” in large letters to warn pickup crew to the danger of the contents within.
Non-Acceptable Items that we can’t pick up at the curb:
- Refrigerators, freezers, or air conditioners (anything that used Freon). Televisions, monitors, tires, batteries of any kind, waste oil or antifreeze from automotive maintenance. These items can be brought to the Recycle Event at 501 Ash (Transfer Station) on Saturday, April 18.

Only one pass through will be made per street. To make sure your big trash is picked up, please be sure to follow the following rules:
- Do not place any items within (10) feet where an overhead obstruction is located above, such as under trees, or under overhead power lines.
- Do not place any items within (5ft) of poly carts, mail boxes, fences, utility meters, or any structure.
- Please remove all portable basketball goals and any other items that are not disposal debris from the curb line. Items left along curb on pick up day are subject to removal. The City will not be responsible for items disposed of which were left at the curb line on pickup day.
All regulations must be followed. If residents’ debris does not follow the regulations, it will not be picked up, and no notification will be given.
