Bulky Items

Recology Sonoma Marin offers curbside bulky item collections for items that don’t fit in your cart, like old furniture, appliances, or mattresses. Petaluma residents receive 2 free annual curbside clean-ups per year. Residents will be notified of the scheduled curbside clean-ups. You may request additional bulky item collections for a collection and processing fee.*

  • Driver must be able to load items safely into his truck
  • No liquid waste or hazardous materials
  • *Additional bulky item pickups are $35.39 for 2 items less than 100 pounds; collection of large items containing Freon is $35.39 for each item.

We do not accept liquids, dirt, rock, concrete or asphalt, hazardous or infectious waste, ashes and materials that exceed 6 feet in length.

Your regular driver who picks up your carts each week does not pick up bulky items. Your items will be collected by a different driver.  Customers may call customer service for bulky item collection questions at 1-800-243-0291 or email

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