Community Clean-Up Programs

Throughout the year, Sikeston residents are offered two opportunities to dispose of bulky wastes and discards not routinely collected during weekly solid waste (trash) pickup. 

1.  The Curbside Pickup Programs are operated in April and October.   Those with curbside pick-up will place their bulky items at the curb on their designated collection days while those with alley pick-up will place their bulky items in the alley along with their household trash.  All items must be close together in one area next to the curb or in the alley.  Do not place items you do not want disposed of close to rubbish or items to be hauled off as they may be taken by mistake. Sonny’s Solid Waste, Inc.(SSW) will not be responsible or replace any items taken if they are next to the alley or curb on pick-up days.

2.  Another opportunity is the Annual Sikeston Community Clean-Up Campaign.  This program gives individuals the chance to dispose of bulky items at the Compost Site, located on Compress Road.  The Community Clean-Up Campaign is conducted in late April through early May

Schedules for these programs will be posted below and in the local newspaper.
