Mattresses in alleyways are a common sight in January. Instead of illegally dumping mattresses and other bulk items, citizens are reminded they can legally dispose of bulky unwanted items for FREE.
A Bulk Item Drop-Off Center has been established at the City’s Recycling Center, 814 West 42nd Street. Citizens can drop off unwanted bulky items, such as mattresses, Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and on Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Accepted items include electronics, furniture, appliances, mattresses and other large items that do not fit in dumpsters. Visit Odessa-TX.gov/BulkItem for a complete list of accepted items.
The Bulk Item Center provides citizens the opportunity to keep Odessa clean and safe while taking pride in their neighborhood. Bulky items illegally dumped are dangerous and unsightly. Large items placed beside dumpsters can prevent trucks from emptying the containers.
