Bulky Items

Example Bulky Items:

  • Sofas/Chairs
  • Mattresses/Box Springs
  • Refrigerators/Freezers
  • Washing Machines


For large items that do not fit or belong in your bins, like old furniture, appliances, or mattresses, residents may schedule a Bulky Item Collection.

Once each calendar year, Burien residential customers may place one larger item (i.e. mattress, dishwasher, refrigerator) at the curb for FREE pick-up. Service charges and disposal/recycling fees apply for collections that exceed one large item. Limits apply:

  • Items must be placed at the curb.
  • Doors must be removed from refrigerators and freezers.

Fees apply for additional items. The disposal rate for bulky items is $73.86.

If it is possible that some of your items, such as sofas and tables, could find a new life, please consider donating to a local non-profit company. Not only will you be helping divert items from the landfill – you will also be helping a great organization.
