Student renters: Policy change notice

City of La Crosse large item pickup service discontinued

The City of La Crosse would like to remind residents and students that Large Item Collection is no longer provided by the city. Items that are too large or heavy to fit in your garbage cart are considered a large item. These include couches, cabinets, desks, carpet, tables, etc. It is the resident's responsibility to dispose of large items.


Municipal Code, Section 36-68: (b)Large items shall not be placed for collection by the City. Disposal of large items shall be the sole responsibility and at the sole expense of the parcel owner.


Students who are renting in the City of La Crosse should be actively discussing this situation with their landlords to see what options are available according to the terms of their lease. Materials should not be left out for disposal unless the materials have been contracted for removal.


Here is a list of resources to consider when disposing of unwanted large items. You are invited to connect with the organization of your choice. Some of these organizations also provide free large item pick up services.
