Bulk Waste Disposal
Bulk Waste Pickup
Beginning in October 2022, the City of Dyer will pick up bulky items from the side of the road once per month, usually on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.
The City of Dyer provides bulky item pickup to residential utility customers with an active utility / trash account. Note that the following items are prohibited and will not be picked up: paint or paint cans of any kind, tires, construction or remodel debris, oils or other hazardous liquids or chemicals, household trash. Additionally, no rental, apartment, or estate cleanouts are allowed.
Note: Leaves, brush, and limbs (six feet or shorter), will be picked up separately by the public works department and should not be mixed with bulk waste.
Items placed for bulky pickup should NOT be on the roadside before the Friday before the bulk pickup. Leaving items on the roadside for several weeks may result in a citation into City Court.
Bulk waste will next be picked up on the second Tuesday of the month. You must request a pickup by noon on the Friday before.
The City of Dyer does not pick up bulky items from the roadside other than the above bulk waste pickup process; if the waste is not in a rolling garbage can, it will not be picked up.
Pickup of limbs, brush, and leaves
The City of Dyer does pick up limbs and leaves. Please leave them as close to the roadside as possibel without obstructing traffic. Limbs should be cut to lengths no longer than 6 feet. Please allow up to 10 working days for pickup (usually it’s much quicker).
Contact City Hall with any questions at (731) 692-3767.
