City of Monticello Bulk Waste Collection Program

Paid for by your monthly Trash Collection Fee

The City of Monticello's Bulk Waste Collection Program is a part of a continuing effort to improve the quality of life for all residents. Less garbage sitting around will provide a safer place for all residents to work and play and keep the city looking its best.

To have bulky items picked up by city crews during the Wednesday collection program, residents must have items placed at the curb (within 5 feet of the edge of the street or sidewalk) by 7am. Bulky items should not be placed at the curb earlier than the day before collection day. If they're wet, they will not be picked up.
