Acceptable Items for Bulk Pickup

Items that can be collected for an additional fee include:

  • Construction and demolition waste such as lumber, brick, fencing, drywall, carpet, and fixtures.
  • Televisions, monitors, laptops, or anything with a screen.
  • Any appliances containing PCBs or refrigerants such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, or water coolers. Refrigerants are disposed of properly at a permitted disposal facility.

As a resident, up to 2 bulky items may be scheduled for collection each week for no additional fee. Additional items may be scheduled at $5 per item. If there is more material at the curb than what was scheduled, it will be collected and charged at the residential remodeling rate of $25 per cubic yard.

To schedule a bulky item pick-up, call Customer Service at (940) 349-8700 at least one business day prior to your collection day. Customers may also use the Residential Solid Waste Service request form to schedule bulky item collection before 3 PM one business day before your collection. Large items can also be taken to the City of Denton Landfill; fees will apply.

Unacceptable Items for Bulk Pickup

Construction/remodeling materials and trash bags.

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in Denton and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
