Example of Accepted Bulky Items:
12 garbage bags (32 gallon size) of garbage, recyclables or compost (loose items must be bagged, boxed, or bundled). This is equivalent to 2 cubic yards (3ft. x 3ft. x 6ft.) of materials.

- Hot ashes
- Hazardous waste
- Infectious waste

Residential customers receive 2 curbside Bulky Item Collections per calendar year at no additional charge (available Mon – Fri, on your regular collection day). 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.
We recommend coordinating one bulky item collection day for your tenants. We will schedule an on-site assessment to determine the location and size of container(s) needed.
Customers may schedule a Bulky Item Collection for a fee. Businesses may utilize this service on a daily basis or as needed. Give us a call to receive free estimates.
Before you toss it, consider donating usable items to a friend, local charity or non-profit organization in San Mateo County. Not only will you be helping divert items from the landfill – you will also be helping a great organization!
