Bulk Pickup - Make a Request

Schedule A Bulk PIckup

Bulk Pickup for large items is now available as a "service by request" and is being performed weekly each 
Wednesday.  You may schedule a Bulk Pickup online with the click of a button or by calling (410) 263-7949. City staff will notify you of your collection day via phone or e-mail.

Small bulk items can be placed out with your refuse on your normal refuse collection day. Small bulk items are those less than 3 feet in length and weighing less than 35 pounds, and include items such as chairs, lamps and end tables. 

Large bulk items require a collection appointment. Large bulk items include household items such as:
  • Sofas
  • Mattresses
  • Bed Frames
  • Televisions (except flat screen TVs) 
  • Refrigerators or freezers (The law requires that doors be removed from any refrigerator or freezer in order to protect children.)
  • Play and exercise equipment
The two-item limit per collection has been eliminated; however, the City may split items between collections days depending on volume. Unscheduled items should not be set out for collection.
  • Bulk refuse must be set out by 6:00 am, but not earlier than 6:00 pm the night before collection. 
  • We do not accept construction materials. (Examples: lumber, drywall, concrete, tile)
  • Free disposal of electronic items is available at our e-cycling drop-off site at 935 Spa Rd. Check in at the trailer. Anne Arundel County also provides e-cycling.
  • The City cannot enter private property to collect the discarded bulk refuse, nor will the city collect building materials generated by homeowners or contractors, or material arising from the demolition of buildings.
