Acceptable Items for Bulk Pickup

  • Couches
  • Chairs — wooden, plastic
  • Mattresses, box springs
  • Toilets
    • 2-piece toilets must be separated when set out at the curb. The tank must be detached from the bowl for the health and safety of the collectors.
    • 1-piece toilets (tank and bowl are one unit) can be set out as is.

Local charities accept donations of new and gently-used home furnishings, appliances and renovation items. Always check with the charity to confirm if your item is acceptable, drop off instructions or to possibly arrange for a free home pick-up. 

Unacceptable Items for Bulk Pickup

Household garbage, hazardous building material, construction material and chemicals.

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