What is Bulky Waste?

Most large items that cannot fit into your regular trash can are considered bulky waste. Examples include:

  • Mattresses
  • Furniture 
  • Vacuums
  • Boats and jet skis. However, the motor must be removed and the item must be free of all fluids, such as gas and motor oil. Gas and motor oil can be disposed of through the ACUA's household hazardous waste drop-off program. If not able to remove motor or fluids, contact an Auto Salvage Yard. 
  • For very large items, such as campers and mobile homes, a handling fee ($100) may be applied
  • Carpeting - HOWEVER, some towns prohibit carpeting to be collected curbside. If your town does not allow carpeting to be accepted curbside, you may bring it to ACUA for disposal. Find your town's information here.
