Keep Mansfield Beautiful Commission (KMBC) promotes city-lead events like Chunk Your Junk and Shred Day.

Chunk Your Junk & Shred Day

Chunk Your Junk events are a chance for residents to bring in old, bulky items that are too large to set out for regular curbside pickup. These events are held twice a year, typically the first week of April and October. Check the city's event calendar for upcoming events.

Accepted items include:

  • Box springs and mattresses
  • Car Batteries
  • Furniture
  • Scrap  metal
  • Tires
  • Appliances (AC units, refrigerators and freezers are accepted ONLY if the coolant has been removed)
  • Tree limbs/branches (these can be dropped off at the mulch site located at 24 N. Mitchell Road)

To expedite your drop-off, please keep your bulky items separated and your trash in bags.

Items not accepted:

  • Butane/propane tanks
  • Chemicals
  • Cleaning products
  • Electronics
  • Fertilizers
  • Motor oil
  • Pesticides
  • Roofing materials
  • Paint
  • We do not accept any materials from businesses or contractors

Most of these items are accepted during the monthly Household Hazardous Waste drop-events.


Proof of residency (utility bill or driver's license) is required at the gate. Staff will be available to help unload your vehicle. All children must remain inside the vehicle while dropping off the materials.
