Bulky waste includes those items that are not suitable to go into standard collection carts, generally due to weight and size. These items include
Carpet (rolled and tied, cut in less than 4-foot lengths)
More than 6 bags of yard waste (bagged leaves, weeds, grass, small vegetation/hedge clippings).
More than 6 bundles of tree branches cut in less than 4-foot lengths
Up to 4 tires
Scheduling Bulky Waste Pick-Up
Residents must call 311 Monday to Friday between 8am to 5pm to schedule collection of bulky waste. Bulky waste should not be placed out for collection 24 hours prior to the scheduled date given for collection. If residents place bulky items out more than 24 hours prior to the scheduled collection, they will be fined. Small businesses are not eligible for bulky waste collection and must contract with private vendors for service.
Bulky Waste Drop-Off
The Department of Sanitation offers citizens the opportunity to drop off a wide range of household goods and bulky waste on the second Saturday of each month. View the Household Items Recycling Drop-Off Calendar here.
