Bulky items, such as appliances and furniture, are collected at no additional charge as part of your regular trash service by appointment only. Call the Office of Solid Waste Management at 910.341.7875 to schedule an appointment. Items should be placed in the right of way only after an appointment is made.
Bulky items, yard waste and metal items must be placed neatly in separate piles on the right-of-way for pick up. Three different trucks service these items.
For the safety of our work crews, plase bend or remove nails from lumber.
Household waste which will not fit in a full trash cart is NOT a bulky item. These extra items must be placed in a bag or box and have an extra trash sticker attached before they will be collected. To purchase extra trash stickers, call the Office of Solid Waste Management at 910.341.7875.
