  • Dresser
  • TV/monitor
  • Outdoor toys
  • Bicycle
  • Microwave oven
  • Grill (no propane tank)
  • Or up to 10 additional bags or boxes of waste not to exceed 70 lbs. each

Items that will not be accepted include:

  • Tires
  • Propane tanks
  • Appliances
  • Construction projects/fence/carpet/decks/etc.
  • Rocks, bricks, concrete
  • Hazardous waste (including paint, oil, aerosol cans, fertilizers, etc.)

If you have any items that are considered too big or too heavy that fit under the acceptable list above call Republic Services at 417-268-1265 or 417-268-1261.

The city says Nixa residents may drop off appliances, yard waste, and other recyclables at the Nixa Recycle Center.
