Bulk waste is any item that is too large to fit in your regular garbage or yard waste containers. This includes items, such as furniture, appliances, mattresses, swing sets, large boxes, and large tree trimmings/landscape debris.
The City has three clam trucks providing customers with the convenience of three Bulk waste routes once per week.
Items need to be ready for pick up no later than 7:00 a.m. The charge is $16.02/cubic yard with additional charges for paint, tires and car batteries. All items placed curbside will be charged for the bulk waste service.
How to Prepare for Pick up
Place items curbside and at least four feet away from any other object, such as your garbage or yard waste containers, mailboxes, trees, or bushes. Do not block sidewalks or storm drains. Bulk waste cannot be mixed with yard waste or garbage. Keep tree trimming piles separate from other types of bulk waste. The City can only accept up to a maximum of 12 cubic yards of debris per customer, per collection day. This enables us to service all customers on the route. Customers who want more than 12 cubic yards of debris collected at one time, please call Waste Management at 407.843.7370 and ask about roll-off services.
- The City does not pick up items generated by private contractors performing tree or remodeling work at your home. The contractor must remove the waste.
- City workers are not allowed to go on private property. If you need assistance getting bulk items out of your home, consider asking a friend or neighbor. If you can't find assistance, please call 1.800.GOT.JUNK or 1.800.JUNK.USA (this is not an endorsement).
BE SURE TO PLACE THE REFRIGERATOR WITH THE DOOR SIDE DOWN or REMOVE THE DOOR, so children cannot get trapped inside.
Examine the types of material you are planning to throw away. Many charitable organizations will gladly accept old household items. Consider donating items to a Goodwill or Thrift Store, instead of sending them to the landfill. Many organizations provide collection services and will come to your home for pick up. This can be claimed as a deduction on your tax return!
