Large / Oversized Items
UPDATE MARCH 16, 2020:
Until April 6, 2020, we are asking City residents to call ahead prior to coming into the office to purchase a special refuse tag or disposing of volume trash.  This way we can make alternative arrangements to limit in-person transactions.

Special Refuse Tag Purchase Location

The City of Plymouth requires all large and/or odd items have a special refuse tag, which can be purchased at the Municipal Services Department located at:
1231 Goldsmith 
Plymouth, MI 48170

The department is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am - 4:30 pm.

  • The tag price is based of the average volume of an item.
  • Prices range from $5 for a bed frame to $15 for a couch.
  • For a specific price on your item please contact us directly.
  • We accept a cash, check, or money order for payment.

Below are some of the more common items:
  • Carpet: Fold or roll into sections no wider than 3 feet in length and weighing no more than 50 pounds. Each bundle requires a tag.
