Bulk Waste Collection

Bulk Waste & Furniture Collection


Bulky item service is provided to residents who have large items that are too large to be collected by rollout cart crews.

We pick up:
  • Furniture/Mattresses and Box Springs

  • Window/Mirrors (with glass taped and “X” marked on both sides so that it does not shatter when collected.

  • Lawn Equipment (drain oil and gas from discarded lawn mowers, weed eaters)

  • A maximum of two automobile tires will be collected.

We do not pick up:
  • Dirt/Rocks

  • Concrete/Concrete Blocks/Bricks

  • Hazardous/Flammable Material

  • Loose Ashes/Loose Sawdust

  • Roofing Shingles

  • Car Parts/Batteries

  • Logs or Stumps

  • Closed Containers (such as oil drums)

  • Propane/Oxygen Cylinders

  • Tires from Commercial Establishments

  • Large Truck or Farm Tires

Bulky items that cannot be collected by rollout cart crews require special pickup. Pickup may be scheduled by calling in two-business days prior to your scheduled collection day by calling 252 467-4800, option 7.

The City may need to designate where bulky items are to be placed by residents in order to provide safe and efficient service. Residences on corner lots will be collected from the street locations considered most serviceable for collection crews and equipment.

Bulky items should be placed away from automobiles, mailboxes, fences, low hanging wires or limbs or other items, which might hamper collection.

The City will not pick up bulky or discarded items resulting from eviction or other legal proceedings.

The City will not pickup bulk waste from commercial establishments or multifamily locations serviced by stationary containers (dumpsters).
