Bulk items include household items such as:
  • Sofas, couches

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.

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.
