For large items that don’t fit in your bins, like old furniture, appliances, or mattresses, schedule a curbside Bulky Item Collection or drop off your items at your nearest facility.

Example Bulky Items:

  • Appliances
  • Electronics
  • Mattresses
  • Furniture
  • Metal Items, including scrap metal
  • Textiles
  • Carpet & padding – prepared in manageable sizes
  • Small and large loose items (items should be boxed or bagged)

CURBSIDE RESIDENTIAL (single family homes)
Residential customers receive 5 coupons per year for bulky item collections at no additional charge. Each large item is equal to one coupon. Residents may schedule up to two on-call bulky item waste pickups per year, where you can dispose of up to 5 bulky items total.

If you exceed your number of free pickups, you may request additional collections for a fee. If you are a tenant in a multi-family building, please contact your property manager to schedule a pickup.

NOTE: Weight limits may apply and acceptability of items is at the discretion of the driver. Also, Hazardous items are not accepted curbside.

Commercial customers can schedule Bulky Item Collections for a fee. Give us a call to receive free estimates.

Residents and businesses may also drop off items at the Recology Butte Colusa Counties Transfer Station. Fees apply.

If it’s possible that some of your items, such as sofas and tables, could find a new life, please consider donating to one of the many non-profits in Butte or Colusa County. Not only will you be helping divert items from the landfill – you will also be helping a great organization!
