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

Fall/Spring Chunk Your Junk Days

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.

Free, onsite secure shredding is also offered during Chunk Your Junk events. There is also a Shred-Only Day offered in January.

Check the calendar for upcoming events.

Accepted items include:

  • Box Springs
  • Car Batteries
  • Cooking Oil
  • Couches

  • Mattresses
  • Other Appliances (AC units, refrigerators and freezers will be accepted only if the coolant has been removed)
