The On-Call Bulky Item Pick-up Service is provided to recycle large items such as mattresses or appliances, excess plant materials and wood and to dispose of excess trash or bulky items.
On-Call Bulky Item Pick-Up
Apartment/condo complex owners or managers should contact Recology at (650) 595-3900 to schedule a Bulky Item Pick-Up Service.
For acceptable items and restrictions, limits are:
- 2 cubic yards per household (equal to twelve 32-gallon cans or bags).
- 1 large item (such as a couch) or appliance (such as a dishwasher or refrigerator) that does not exceed 200 pounds. Refrigerators (with doors removed) require special handling and must be requested at the same time that you schedule your clean-up date.
- 1 Computer monitor, TV or personal computer.
- No hazardous wastes (paints, thinners, or other chemicals) will be accepted for On-Call Bulky Item Pick-Up or through your regular garbage or recycling collection service.
Please consider donating to any number of local non-profits and community groups. This can reduce the waste stream and provide a second life for the items you are discarding. Please visit Recology's Don't Toss It page for a list of organizations.
