Bulky items are items that do not fit inside of an approved garbage container, such as a large appliance or piece of furniture. The Region of Waterloo provides bulky item collection every second week (the same week as garbage collection) from eligible households. Limits apply.
Wondering if your item is collectable and how to prepare it for collection? Use our Waste Whiz search box.
Unacceptable Items for Bulk Pickup
- Hazardous waste
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 Waterloo and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
