Apartment buildings may have different rules for disposing of trash, recycling and bulk items so please check with your management office.
Unacceptable Items for Bulk Pickup
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 Fort Lee and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
