Owensboro Sanitation - Bulky Collections & Special Loads

Owensboro Sanitation Department

Special Loads

Your $12.00 basic service fee covers normal mobile cart collection. With our “pay as you throw” system, we offer additional services for the collection of items that will not fit inside your cart.

Guidelines for Quality Service

Please contact us in advance for collections. Since we have only one truck for this service, you may experience service delays. When you phone us, please give a good description of the items in your load. This allows for a better cost estimate. Place items to be collected curbside; due to liability limitations, we are not allowed to drive into your yard for service.  Please ensure that all items intended for pickup are not placed within 4-feet of any stationary objects such as vehicles, poles, fences, mailboxes, etc... and are not placed underneath overhead obstructions such as trees, lines, etc...
