One of our services to the City of Fort Smith sanitation customers is our Dial-A-Truck program. This program allows a city sanitation customer to call our Residential Dispatcher and schedule a pick-up of five (5) large bulky items, once every three (3) months for FREE. Large bulky items include but are not limited to, appliances, couches, tables, chairs, and mattresses. 

We do NOT pick-up items with the Dial-A-Truck that are bagged or boxed, glass/mirrors, loose trash, construction/remodel debris or tires with the Dial-A-Truck. 

There is a fee for having more than 6+ items at the time of DAT pickup or if more than one collection per quarter is requested.  Fees for each additional collection will be based on the number of items to be collected (or if more than five times were set out for an already scheduled DAT pickup).
