Bulk Waste Pickup Calendar 2024

The city is now picking up bulk trash on your regularly scheduled trash day. Simply set your bulk curbside or in the alley next to your trash cart and we will send a litter truck through on your regularly scheduled trash day to pick it up. 

Acceptable Items for Bulk Pickup

  • Appliances
  • Furniture
  • Large piles of tree limbs and brush

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 Galveston and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
