The most popular coupon ever! Sedgwick County will soon be releasing its bulky waste coupon for 2018. (aka dump coupon, lol.)
Sedgwick County is once again be 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.
Only residents of Sedgwick County are eligible for the coupons and must be prepared to haul the trash. Bulky waste includes furniture, mattresses, appliances, electronics and other items that haulers aren’t able to pick up, but NOT tires, items with Freon or hazardous materials. Businesses are not eligible.
Before you toss it, check to see if it can be recycled using the recycling guide at www.sedgwickcounty.org.
When you receive the coupon in the mail, it will tell you which dumps will accept the bulky waste coupon. In the past, the following locations accepted them:
- Waste Connections Transfer Station, 4300 W. 37th St. N., 941-4320
- Waste Disposal LLC Transfer Station, 5550 W. 55th St. S., 522-3633
An online request form is 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.)
Your bulky waste coupon will expire this year on October 24, 2018.
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.
