Bulk Item Disposal

The City of Melissa and our solid waste provider Waste Connections (formerly Progressive Waste Solutions) offers a FREE monthly bulk pickup for all residential solid waste customers.  Solid Waste Brochure - Waste Connections (updated October 2016)

*NOTE: Collin County has suspended the monthly FREE bulk disposal (Collin County Cleanup Day) normally held on the 1st Saturday of the month as of August 2018 due to the ongoing construction of SH 121 at the landfill's entrance.  For more information on this visit Collin County Public Works website.*

Bulk Pickup is Changing - Know YOUR Zone
The City of Melissa and Waste Connections have devised a plan that we believe will serve our collective customers best as we continue to grow and hopefully minimize some of the issues with missed pickups that have occurred. 

Free monthly bulk service pick-ups are offered to residential waste customers and will occur BY ZONE on THURSDAYS EACH WEEK.  The Zones and Schedule for pickups will work as follows (see map below):

NEW City of Melissa Free Bulk Pickup Zones and Schedule (Effective July 2018)

You will still be required to pre-schedule your pickup the same way with Waste Connections by calling and/or emailing by the 4:00 P.M. the Wednesday prior to your Zone’s regular pickup date.   Contact customer service at (469) 452-8000 or iesimelissa@iesi.com.  

*NOTE: They will need to know generally what you plan for pick up at that time to avoid any potential issues - when in doubt, call or email photo to Waste Connection to avoid items being left behind.*
