Bulky item disposal

Citizens have the opportunity to legally dispose of bulky unwanted items for free.

A Bulk Item Drop-Off Center has been established at the City’s Recycling Center, 814 West 42nd Street. Citizens can drop off unwanted bulky items Tuesday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and on Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

The Bulk Item Center is an opportunity for citizens to help keep Odessa clean and safe.

Accepted items include electronics, furniture, appliances, mattresses and other large items that do not fit in dumpsters.

Bulky items illegally dumped are dangerous and unsightly. Large items placed beside dumpsters can prevent trucks from emptying the containers.

For more information, call Solid Waste at 368-3509 or for Household Hazardous Waste 368-3546.

For a complete list of accepted items go online.
