Bulky Item

Bulky item collection is a residential-only service offered by the Department of Sanitation. This service is by appointment only. Most general household bulky items are collected at no additional charge for single-family residences utilizing paid green-cart curbside garbage collection and in good standing with Conway Corporation utilities. Curbside collection will be schedule in conjunction with the resident's regularly scheduled garbage collection day.

Three items per collection and up to two collections per calendar year are permitted for each residential account. Some specialty items (no different than when brought directly to the landfill) will require a nominal disposal fee. This fee allows the landfill to dispose of the item properly, per state and federal guidelines. Any applicable fee(s) will be discussed when making the appointment and included in the resident’s monthly Conway Corporation billing.
