Bulky item collection is offered every week. A maximum of 3 bulky items can be placed on the curb the same day as your normal household collection for garbage and recycling. When residential garbage crews come through to pick up green and blue roll out carts, they’ll note bulky items on the curb and the next day a bulky crew will come back to pick it up.
Proper way to prepare a bulky item
Yard waste customers are entitled to 2 free bulky brush pickups per year. Call 919-560-1200 to schedule an appointment. Your bulky brush must not exceed 4 cubic yards or one average size pickup truck. Excess debris will be charged.
When disposing of appliances, all food and debris must be removed prior to collection. Remove or secure doors to eliminate potential hazards to children. When disposing of lawn equipment, gasoline, oil, and any other fluids must be removed before collection.
Proper Bulky Brush Placement
Items are picked up mechanically using a special boom truck. For safety reasons, don't place items under low hanging wires or tree limbs. Do not cover water meters, fire hydrants and telephone boxes with items or brush to be collected. Also, don't place items near or on top of underground sprinklers, decorative stones, or other items that may be damaged in the collection process.

Placement for Townhouse Communities Collected by the City
Parked vehicles, low hanging power lines, utility poles, and other objects obstruct the larger trucks from being able to collect bulky items. Contact your property management for the designated area to place your items for collection.
