Curbside Bulk Item Collection

Please note - College Hunks will only be stopping at each qualifying household one time. 

Once a street has been completed, they will not make another pass through. If items are not at the curb by 11pm on Sunday (prior to collection starting) we cannot guarantee pickup. 


Pilot Program Overview

In April/May of 2022, Texas Township is partnering with College Hunks to pilot a curbside bulk item collection service. The township will be divided into four zones of ~1,500 homes per zone. Each zone will have one designated week for collection.  

Service Availability

This service will be available for single-family homes and condominiums located within the Township. It will not be available for vacant parcels, commercial or industrial buildings, apartments, or manufactured home communities.

How it Works

Residents can place accepted items at the curb the Friday-Sunday prior to the start of collection in their zone. College Hunks will pick up the items during the designated collection period (within six days) and recycle or dispose of the items. Items  must be placed at the curb by 11pm on the Sunday prior to collection beginning in that zone.

Maximum collection per household is three cubic yards (approximately the size of a pickup truck bed).

Collection Zones

Items MUST be at the curb by 11pm on the Sunday prior to collection starting. Late items will not be accepted.
