Large-Item Pickup


October 21–25, 2024

Twice each year, City of Merriam staff picks up large items, such as furniture, appliances, carpets/rugs, and miscellaneous items across the City.

The Merriam Public Works Department provides this service during the third full weeks of April and October. Residents should place their items curbside before 7 a.m. on their scheduled pickup day. Our Public Works crews start on 75th St. and head north. Please note that crews may come to your home early. They’ll come back through your neighborhood on your designated day to finish picking up items.

Please wait until the weekend of October 19 before placing items on the curb.

A one-time pickup in scheduled areas occurs: 

  • Monday: North of 75th and south of 67th; East of Switzer and west of Antioch
  • Tuesday: North of 67th and south of Johnson Dr.; East of Switzer and west of Antioch
  • Wednesday: North of 67th and south of 54th Terr.; East of Antioch and west of Lowell
  • Thursday: North of Johnson Dr. and south of 53rd; West of Antioch and east of Switzer
  • Friday: North of 53rd and south of 47th; West of Antioch and east of Switzer

Use the map to determine your pickup day based on where you live or search by your address.

Residents should not load items into truck beds, trailers or inside containers they wish to keep.
