The next Bulky Item Pickup event will begin Monday, April 18. Those residents wishing to participate in the pickup should have all acceptable bulky items curbside by 6 a.m. Items placed out late will not be removed.

Bulky item collection events are held a few times per year and provide Lewisville residents an easy and convenient way to dispose of unwanted, large items that would otherwise need to be taken to the landfill.

Town Hall has received recent calls about the event, so town staff are anticipating high participation from Lewisville residents.

“We want to make sure our residents are informed as to what is considered a bulky item. This event is intended for disposal of items too large to fit within a trash cart — items such as large pieces of furniture, carpet, mattresses, box springs and white goods,” Town Manager Hank Perkins said. “We are going to provide information in the newsletter, Channel 6, our website and Facebook to give everyone an opportunity to understand what is acceptable for bulky item collection. Residents may also call Town Hall if they have additional questions or concerns.

The “rule of thumb” is to avoid placing bags of trash, televisions, cardboard boxes, lumber scraps, clothing, books, construction debris and other prohibited items out for the collection. If Waste Management sees a contaminated collection pile, the site will not be serviced.

Perkins said the collection times are a busy one for staff because of all the calls as to what is allowed, reports of individual homes missed and complaints about people leaving unacceptable items at the curb long after the event has ended.

Guidelines for what is accepted and what is prohibited can also be found on the Lewisville website, www.lewisvillenc.net, or on Channel 6. Residents may contact Town Hall at 336-945-5558 to obtain further information or visit the town’s website at lewisvillenc.net.
