  • Place the bulky items next to but apart from your refuse, recycling and yard trimmings containers. If your building has bin service, items should be placed at the curb.
  • Do not place bulky items in the street or alley where they may obstruct traffic or cause a hazardous condition.
  • Items may be put out the night before your regular collection day but no sooner than 7:00 p.m. All items must be placed out by 7:00 a.m. on the day of collection.

Bulky items include household furnishings (e.g. sofas, mattresses, floor lamps without light bulbs) and appliances (e.g. hot water heaters and refrigerators). Refrigerators/freezers that are placed at the curb for bulky item collection must have their doors removed. Carpet and lumber are accepted if bundled and less than five feet in length and two feet in diameter.

Yard trimmings, tires, glass items (e.g. aquariums, glass doors), cast iron bathtubs, and other construction/building materials, including asphalt and concrete, are not accepted. A sample list of bulky items can be found here [PDF].

Do not place bulky items in cardboard boxes or mix them with refuse.

Cardboard boxes should be broken down and placed in your gray recycling container or taken to the Recycling Center for sale or drop-off. Hazardous materials, such as oil or paint, should be taken to the Environmental Management Center. Check the Fire Department Web site for more details.
