Spring Free Curbside Bulk Collection

  • We are delaying the beginning of Spring Free Curbside Bulk Collection from May 1st to Monday, July 6th. Collection typically takes about two weeks, and we’ll be providing an area-specific schedule as we get closer to July 6th.


The City of Bloomington Public Works Department regularly collects solid waste at the curbside. Garbage is collected every week, recycling is collected every other week, and brush is collected every other week alternating with recycling. Leaves are normally picked up as part of brush, but Public Works also does a fall leaf collection. To view your collection schedule, you have three options:

On your collection day, please make sure not to park on the street blocking garbage cans, piles of brush, piles of bulk waste, etc. Crews will not be able to collect solid waste if a vehicle is in the way. Please see the "Your Cart at the Curb" section below for more information.

The only holiday that collection does not take place is Christmas Day.
