Bulky Items

Waste Management provides bulky item service throughout East San Diego County area - if you have a couch, bed or other large item that needs to be disposed of, contact us to pick it up. Please visit the section dedicated to your city for specific guidelines and information on special bulky item events.

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!
