Bulk Waste

Bulk Waste Definition


Bulk Waste consists of furniture, bicycles, televisions, and white goods such as refrigerators, washers and dryers (please remove the doors for safety). View unaccepted materials list.

Collection Information


Bulk items are picked up once a week for single family curbside collection areas. Bulk items should be placed a minimum of 5 feet away from other garbage containers or other obstructions.  Your collection day for bulk items is the same day as your current recycling and vegetation pick up day (PDF).

Utility/Power line or Obstruction Notice


Any items placed under a utility/power line, trees, limbs, or any other obstruction, will not be collected.  Bulk items should be placed a minimum of 5 feet away from trees, utility poles, mail boxes, garbage containers or any other obstacle.

Size Limitations


Bulk items larger than 2 cubic yard (equal to a washer and dryer) will require a Pay for Pickup Option.


Pay for Pickup Option


We continue to offer the "Pay for Pickup" option which allows residents to make arrangements for bulk items to be picked up on unscheduled collection days for a fee (see the latest City User Fee Schedule).  Only acceptable/non-hazardous materials can be collected using this option.

Recycling Encouraged


Residents are encouraged to recycle their Bulk items such as old electronics including televisions, computers, monitors, and stereos. Check your local computer store for recycling opportunities, or you can drop them off at any one of the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County’s transfer stations.
