Bulky items

Bulky item pickup is a service offered at no charge for households with city waste collection service. Most bulky items – including mattress, box spring, appliance and tire collections – can be collected from the curb on your regular collection day.

To schedule a special item collection, call LexCall at 311 or (859) 425-2255. You can also submit a service request online or by using the LexCall mobile app. Pickups are normally made within five business days of your request.

Please consider donating items in good condition to a local charity, such as Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Salvation Army, Kentucky Refugee Ministries or Goodwill. 

Special items


Curbside pickup can be scheduled for appliances such as air conditioners, freezers, refrigerators, water heaters, washers, dryers, stoves and furnaces. Appliances containing Freon will be accepted, but appliances containing oil are not. Collected items will be recycled.

The city does not offer curbside collection for humidifiers, TVs, microwaves, computers, printers and other electronics. These items can be taken to the Electronic Recycling Center

You should:

  • Schedule a pickup by contacting LexCall
  • Remove doors from refrigerators and freezers
  • Place appliance at the curb for collection

All Fayette County residents and apartment complexes can recycle appliances at no cost by dropping them off to: 

Environmental Recycling Inc.
3899 Winchester Road
Monday – Friday
7 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Another way to recycle appliances could be the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. If you are interested, please contact them directly.

Box spring and mattress

Place your box spring and/or mattress on the curb, flat on the ground, beside your carts. They will be picked up on your normal collection day.

Please make sure the item is not blocked by vehicles, fire hydrants, trees, cable wires or other objects.

Bed mattresses and mattresses from sleeper sofas may be collected separately due to possible bug infestation. Please call LexCall if there are bugs on your item.


We can take grills at the curb as long as all charcoal/gas tanks are removed. 


The city will pick up to four small truck or car tires a week from homes that receive city collection services. Schedule a pickup by contacting LexCall. Place your tires on the curb. The tires must be off the rims.
