Bulk Waste Pickup Calendar 2023

You may request a curbside pickup of bulky items (maximum of five items per appointment) by submitting a completed Bulky Pickup Request Form along with the applicable fee.

Acceptable Items for Bulk Pickup

Examples of bulky items that qualify for curbside pickup include:

  • chairs, couches and cribs
  • exercise equipment
  • free-standing shelves
  • kitchen and laundry appliances
  • mattresses and box springs
  • rugs and carpets

Unacceptable Items for Bulk Pickup

By law or for safety reasons, the following materials are not picked up curbside under the bulky item program:

  • Construction/demolition debris (including doors, windows, cabinetry and bathroom fixtures)
  • Electronics (including televisions, computers, monitors and VCRs)
  • Landscaping materials such as rocks, concrete or wood
  • Propane tanks, fire extinguishers or other pressurized containers
  • Glass items (those with trivial amounts of glass MAY be collected, at the driver’s discretion)

Many of these items may be disposed of at the Drop Off Facility.  If you are unsure if a bulky item qualifies for curbside collection, consult What Goes Where or contact the Highway Division.

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