Instead of having EVERYBODY put their stuff out on May 1st, there is now a schedule, and you should check to see what your zone/collection date is.
Bravo BLM. MUCH BETTER idea.
Public Works crews will be collecting bulk waste from May 1 through May 14 for the Free Spring Bulk Waste Collection. In response to public feedback, Public Works will collect bulk waste on regularly-scheduled brush pickup days to prevent large piles of bulk waste on the curb during the collection process. Please keep in mind that the volume of waste may delay pickup, but all bulk waste for the Free Spring Bulk Waste Collection must be placed at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on regularly-scheduled brush pickup days. Please keep bulk waste at the curb until it is collected. To view brush pickup days, visit www.recyclebn.org to use Recycle Coach online or download the Recycle Coach app from the Google Play Store or the App Store. The schedule is also shown on the map on the attached page. Users will not be charged for any amount of household bulk waste placed at the curb by the deadline on their regularly-scheduled brush pickup day.
After the Free Spring Bulk Waste Collection is complete, Public Works will charge: $25 per bucket (about 2.5 cubic yards) for household bulk waste and $100 per bucket for sod, dirt, concrete, rocks and shingles. This year’s Free Fall Bulk Waste Collection will take place in October.

Personally, I LOVE the Bloomington Citizen Convenience Center. Since we just moved, I have been there many times to drop off bulk waste (after checking to see what is acceptable), and if you are a resident, there is no additional charge. The Bloomington Citizen Convenience Center is located at the corner of East Street and Jackson Street, south of the Bloomington Public Library. Hours of operation changed on March 18, and are M-F 7am to 8pm, Saturday 7am – 3pm, closed on Sundays and municipal holidays.
