Bulky Items

Waste Management provides bulky item service throughout the North County area - if you have a couch, bed or other large item that needs to be disposed of, contact your local housing office on how to have these items picked up.

Before you toss out your bulky items, check to make sure there isn't someone else in your community that could make use of it! Waste Management is a partner with Freecycle, an online network where members give away and get items for free in their own communities - rather than filling up our landfills with gently used items, find someone else in your community who could put it to good use!
