Each year, every neighborhood will have one Bulky Waste Pick-up in the spring. You will receive a notice with the calendar kits in December, or keep an eye on Lodi News Sentinel for our Bulky Waste ad.
Acceptable Bulky Items
Examples of bulky items are: furniture, appliances (refrigerators must have freon removed), wood waste, tree branches, scrap wood, debris from building remodeling, clothing. WM accepts up to six 32-gallon bags or about one yard; all materials must be bagged, boxed or bundled.
Bulky items cannot exceed eight feet in length, four feet in width or weigh more than 150 pounds.
Non-Acceptable Bulky Items
Household hazardous waste (such as paint, oil and batteries), spas, piano, camper shells, cast iron bathtubs or items requiring more than two persons to safely handle.
Household Hazardous Waste
Household hazardous waste is any product labeled toxic, poison, corrosive, flammable, combustible or irritant. HHW items include paint, batteries, oil, and pesticides. These products, if mishandled, can be dangerous to your health and the environment, and therefore should be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. Also, these materials should never be discarded in a sink, storm drain or in your regular trash.
The County of San Joaquin sponsors annual HHW drop off days at the Lodi Transfer Station. The date of this event will be posted in the Lodi News Sentinel.
