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 May and October.   Place your bulky items at the curb on your designated collection days.  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 curb on pick-up days.  A limit of four (4) bulky items per day for pickup (furniture, extra bags, etc.).  The nomal trash trucks will not pick up your bulky items - another truck will be sent to get these items.  Make sure your toter is 3 feet away from your bulky items.  All mattress & box springs must be wrapped in plastic or they will not be picked up.  See the list below for items that will not be accepted and items that have a pickup-up fee associated with it.

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

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