Ok Amarillo, one thing I’ve seen in my short time here is these large items like couches and whatnot in the alleys. They just sit there and create an eyesore. You DO realize there’s a better way to get rid of these items correct? Amarillo is one of the very FEW cities in Texas that will remove these items FREE OF CHARGE for you if you can just follow a few easy steps. Let me help you with this. 

Step one, place a phone call to (806) 378-6813 to schedule a time for them to come and grab your large items. 

Step two, place the large item(s) or trash on your front curb. Not your alley, your front curb. 

Step three, grab your favorite beverage, sit down in your comfy chair during your scheduled pick up time and watch them haul it away absolutely free. 

Seems pretty simple right? I’ll tell you this much, I wish the city of Austin had something like this when I picked up and moved out here a few weeks ago. I wouldn’t have spent so much time and effort hauling these kinds of items to the dump. Oh right, I would’ve saved some hard-earned cash too. 

Remember, this is for ANY large items that you are looking to get rid of, it’s not something specific. Let’s keep Amarillo looking nice and clean so when new people (like me) come into the city, their first impression isn’t “oh look, there’s a dump down every one of these alleys”. Keep it clean Bomb City!
