Bulky Items

BULKY ITEM COLLECTION

For large items that don’t fit in your bins, like old furniture, appliances, or extra bags of recycling and trash, schedule a Bulky Item Collection.

Residential
Residential customers receive 2 curbside collections year at no additional charge. 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.

Each collection must be scheduled 24 hours in advance and items should be placed near your curb no later than 7 AM.

Commercial
Customers may on-call collections for a fee. Businesses may utilize this service on a daily basis or as needed. Give us a call to receive free estimates.

If you have extra organics, recyclables, or landfill material that will not fit in your containers, you may purchase Extra Bag Tags. Just place the tag on your materials near the curb and your driver will pick it up on your regularly scheduled garbage pickup day.
