The most popular coupon ever is back. Sedgwick County has released its bulky waste coupon (aka dump coupon, lol) for 2022.
Sedgwick County is once again offering residents a coupon for FREE disposal of bulky waste up to 1,000 pounds. (Loads exceeding this limit are accepted, but will be subject to fees.) You have to haul it, but with the coupon there will be no charge for disposing of it.
This year, be sure to double- and triple-check the safety guidelines given on the flyer so that you have the proper PPE for dropping off at the dump.
Only residents of Sedgwick County are eligible for the coupons and must be prepared to haul the trash to the dump specified.
The items that are accepted may change from year to year, so do double-check your coupon when you get it. The coupon does not include tires, mattresses and box springs, appliances with freon, or hazardous materials. (Check out the Household Hazardous Waste Facility for those.)
Before you toss something, check to see if it can be recycled using the recycling guide at www.sedgwickcounty.org.
Businesses are not eligible to use the bulky waste coupon.
When you receive the coupon in the mail, it will tell you which dumps will accept the bulky waste coupon. It looks like there is ONE location accepting the trash coupon this year:
- Waste Connections Transfer Station, 4300 W. 37th St. N., 941-4320
An online request form will be available at https://ssc.sedgwickcounty.org/couponrequest/ Residents must be prepared to present their name and address online or over the phone.

Last year the coupons were mailed within one week of request. Tell your husband, kids, and anyone else who might have the mail key to check for your coupon! You sure don’t want it to accidentally be thrown out. (Almost happened at my house last year.)
We are not sure when your bulky waste coupon will expire. It is not listed on the website.
For more information, contact Sedgwick County Environmental Resources at 660-7200.
Tip: For a major cleanup project, you need the right trash bags like these contractor bags at Amazon. Contractor bags don’t rip as easily when you load them with large, irregular, or sharp objects.
says none are available.
Oh no, are they out already?? I just saw it and signed up for a coupon this morning. I wonder if some other media outlet shared about the coupons before me. A whole bunch of people go sign up for it and then they run out…
Looks like ALL the TV news stations ran a story about it. Sorry. 🙁
Hey! They’re back, Lori. I checked again this morning (Monday, Sept. 20 at 8:33 a.m.) and the coupon link is there.
You might check next year before you list acceptable items, this year it states on coupon that mattresses and box springs not accepted.
Okay. Got it. It’s just that if I wait to share until I’ve gotten my coupon, then some people won’t find out until the coupons are already gone. But I’ll see if I can’t find the list of acceptable items next year and check it against what I have from previous years.
I did add a note that acceptable items may change from year to year.

Darn, I didn’t know they were limited! Where can I find out how much it costs to dump a load?
Yeah, darn! I think they charge by the pound, and my husband says you can call them to find out how much that is. There are a few different landfills; I think the Sedgwick County site (the same one that had the coupon) has a list of them. I’ll see if I can find that link…
Here it is: https://www.sedgwickcounty.org/environment/transfer-stations/
I guess only one of the two transfer stations is currently open, and there’s a phone number on that page.
JANA K SCHECK says
why can I not order the voucher/coupon it is saying none are available
Well, it may be possible that they’re out of coupons now. I’ll double-check and see if I can find anything out…
Okay, yes. I am seeing that they are all out of the coupons.
When should a person watch for the couple? I thought Aug it didn’t show. Then they were all gone this year and last year???
This time they seemed to go really fast. I try to watch for them beginning in late summer, and this time they released the coupon on or around August 1, if I remember correctly.
In past years it has been later (maybe September?). I don’t know anything about their planning process or how many coupons they have. I just keep an eye out for it and share when I see it!
Thanks for the info. I will be sure to check back Aug. 1. I need to do some late ‘spring’ cleaning & used one of these coupons a couple years ago. Saving that $20 is a nice benefit.
Glenda Brewer says
Is this a one time trip to use the coupon or can you use it several times until the limit is hit for your address?
That’s a good question, but I’m not really sure. The coupon may have more information when you receive it – we got one last year, but I honestly can’t remember what it said.
I may be able to find out, so I’ll edit the post above if I get more info!
Hi Glenda. I heard back from the folks at Sedgwick County. The coupon is good only for one trip, so you might want to find a friend with a truck if you have a small vehicle.
The good news is that it’s usually good for a few months, so you don’t have to make a run as soon as you get the coupon.
