Starting in this month, August 2020, the City of Big Spring will change the Large/Bulk Item Pickup procedure. Residents will now have to CALL AND SCHEDULE A PICKUP for their district's scheduled pick up day. This program is part of the city’s plan to help keep their neighborhoods clean, and they encourage all residents to take advantage of the free program.
The next LARGE/BULK ITEM PICKUP will be for DISTRICT 2 on Wednesday, August 19, 2020. Be advised, YOU MUST GET ON THE PICKUP SCHEDULE TO HAVE YOUR LARGE/BULK ITEMS PICKED UP.
If you do not get on the schedule, your items will not be picked up. To schedule item pick up, Big Spring District 2 residents must call Public Works at 432-264-2501, or email firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 PM on Monday, August 17, 2020, to schedule a large/bulk item pickup for the following Wednesday, August 19, 2020, which is the designated collection day.
