Bulk Waste

Bulk Item Collection

Bulk items are collected from single-family residences once a week. The collection day for bulk items is the same day as your current recycling and vegetation.

Bulk items include:

  • Furniture
  • Bicycles
  • Televisions
  • White goods such as refrigerators, washers and dryers (please remove doors for safety)

Bulk items should be placed a minimum of 5 feet away from other garbage containers or other obstructions.

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, mailboxes, 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" (see below).

Pay for Pickup Option

The City offers a "Pay for Pickup Option" which allows residents to make arrangements for bulk items and vegetation to be picked up on unscheduled collection days. A minimum fee of $145.01 will be charged for items measuring up to 2 cubic yards (e.g., a washer and dryer). Anything over that will require an additional charge of $31.99 per cubic yard.

For more information or to schedule a pickup, please call the Sanitation Department at 561-416-3367.

Please Note: Only acceptable / non-hazardous materials can be picked up using this option.

Recycling Encouraged

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