For items that are too large to fit into the trash can, residents may request the pick up of household bulky goods. We will retrieve up to five large items such as furniture or appliances three times annually -- see the full list of acceptable and unacceptable bulky items. Advance notice is required. To schedule a bulky goods pick up, please contact Waste Management at 1(800) DUMPSTER or (760) 439-2824 at least 24 hours in advance of your regular collection day, as pick up will occur on your collection day. Twice per year during the spring and fall, Waste Management also conducts citywide "unlimited" bulky item pick ups, at which time no appointments are necessary.
Note: Due to state environmental laws, electronic items such as TVs or computer monitors are handled separately from other bulky items. We will retrieve up to five e-waste items three times annually. To schedule an e-waste pick up, please contact Waste Management at 1(800) DUMPSTER or (760) 439-2824 at least 24 hours in advance of your regular collection day, as pick up will occur on your collection day. E-Waste may also be dropped off at one of Waste Management’s recycle centers. Please take these items to Waste Management's Recycling Centers at 2880 Industry St. in Oceanside, or 5960 El Camino Real in Carlsbad, Tuesday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oceanside residents may drop off e-waste such as TVs, computers, fax machines or stereos at no-charge at the Oceanside location only.
