Bloomington Yard Waste Collection Begins April 12th
***Bloomington customers subscribed to the city's yard waste program are now limited to their yard waste cart and 20 extra bags each week.***
As of 2017, the City of Bloomington has chosen to organize garbage and recycling collection in the city, meaning all haulers are given a specific area of customers. This does mean that you may no longer choose to switch to Vierkant Disposal but if you have been given Vierkant as your provider, we will continue to stay your provider for the foreseeable future.
Vierkant Disposal provides mandatory garbage and recycling pickup as well as optional yard waste service. We provide Bloomington customers with two carts for garbage and recycling and an optional third cart for yard waste (see below).
We ask that all Bloomington customers to have their carts out by 7 am on Tuesday (collection day)
Vierkant offers three sizes of carts including a 35 gallon (fits about 2-3 kitchen bags of trash), a 64 gallon (fits 4-6 kitchen bags of trash), and a 96 gallon (fits 7-10 kitchen bags of trash). For yard waste in the city of Bloomington, we offer a 64 or 96-gallon cart.
Vierkant Disposal provides weekly garbage pickup for the City of Bloomington. For cart sizes see above.
