Olathe residents and businesses can schedule a curbside pick-up of large or bulky items on their scheduled trash collection day.

Bulk Pick-Up Process

  • All items must be placed within eight feet of the curb before 8 a.m. on trash collection day.
  • All items placed at the curb will be collected with the understanding that everything is disposable.
  • Bulk items are picked up mechanically with equipment designed for big furniture and appliances.
  • The mechanical process offers no safe way to set aside containers or other items.
  • Yard waste items, such as brush or limbs, must be placed in a separate pile to distinguish them from other bulky items.  Limbs can not exceed 15 feet in length.
  • The City does not pick-up containers purchased at local retailers or "bagsters."

Residential Fees

Household items, construction debris or brush pick-up is $20 per 15 minutes of loading time with a $20 minimum.

  • Automobile tires are $5 per tire with a $10 minimum.
  • Semi-truck tires are $10 each. 
  • Refrigerated appliance (refrigerators, freezers, and air conditioners) pick-up is $30 per appliance. 
  • Pick-ups scheduled outside the regular trash collection day will be charged an additional flat rate of $20 for the first 15 minutes of load time.
