Have you used your FREE large-item pickups this year?
If you have furniture, appliances or other bulky items to get rid of, remember to take advantage of your FREE large-item pickups from Waste Management before the year is out! Every residence in the city’s trash and recycling program gets five free large-item pickups per year as part of your regular curbside service. If it’s too big to fit in the garbage can, simply call Waste Management at 800-482-6406 to schedule a pickup.
Large-item pickup reminders:
- Call Waste Management in advance to schedule your pickup, which will usually be collected within five business days.
- Depending on their size and weight, some items can be combined and still count as one pickup (i.e. a couch and a table count as one pickup, but a washing machine counts as one pickup by itself).
- You can schedule up to three large-item pickups on the same collection date.
- NOT accepted: appliances containing refrigerants, construction waste from a contractor or any hazardous items. Confirm eligibility of specific items when you call.
To schedule a pickup or ask questions about your items call Waste Management at 800-482-6406.
