The City of Boerne’s semi-annual Large Item Pick-up is
coming! If you are a residential
customer and are billed for garbage service by the City of Boerne you are eligible for Large Item
Pickup. Waste Management crews will
begin collection on Monday, April 23.
To have your items picked up, you must contact
the Utility Customer Service Office to get your address on the pickup list –
the deadline is Friday, April 20.
Customers can make this request online at www.boerne-tx.gov and type in “Request a
Service” in the search box, or call 249-9511 between the hours of 8am and 5pm
Monday through Friday.
All items must be placed at the curb
line in front of the residence (no vacant lots or commercial
establishments). Waste Management will
pass down each street only once, so please have your items out by Sunday, April
22. Customers will be responsible for any items placed curbside but failed to
make the required request with Boerne Utilities.
Items that will be picked up include old
furniture, hot water heaters or other bulky household items. Appliances containing Freon, such as air
conditioners, refrigerators and freezers WILL NOT BE PICKED UP. Please do not put out brush, tires,
batteries or paint cans for this collection.
Any bulky items that contain any amount
of glass, mirror or material that may shatter, will get picked up but only if
it is wrapped and contained to prevent shards from harming the WM crew or
littering the ground.
It is also important to note that the
city’s contract for this service with Waste Management, Inc. no longer includes
collection of electronics of any kind.
Check with local vendors that sell electronics to see if they will
accept these items.
Brush, trees, or landscape materials
will not be picked up during this collection.
Please do not put out tires, batteries or paint cans for this
collection. These items should be taken
to local businesses for recycling. Contact the Utilities Customer Service Office
A mechanical grabber may be used to
remove the large items. To avoid
damage, items should NOT be placed under low utility lines or low tree branches
or adjacent to fences, utility meters, telephone pedestals or fire
hydrants. Items placed in these
restricted areas can not be picked up safely.
City of Boerne allows items to be placed at the curb one week prior to the
collection. Placing items out sooner
causes a hazardous situation by attracting rodents, blocking sidewalks and
walkways, and is very unsightly.
