Bulk Item Disposal Policy and Fees

The official Bulk Item Policy is posted on the Public Works web page. Please click Bulk Item Policy to view the bulk item acceptable list, costs, & options.

A bulk item is generally defined as something too large to fit into the 64 gallon town trash cart. If your bulk item is something you no longer want or need and is in decent condition, please consider donating it as a reuse item for others.

Keeping Bulk Items OUT of the trash saves tax dollars as well as your own money. Equally important considerations to extend the life of your bulk item is to understand 1. reuse creates much less trash, which prevents pollution caused by transportation and incineration, and 2. reuse protects natural resources.

A FEW REUSE OPTIONS ARE:

1. Habitat for Humanity- Restore site - 1580 VFW Pkwy, Dedham MA. Schedule a pick up or drop off. Surplus paint is accepted.

2. Savers Thrift Store -560 Boston Providence Hwy, Norwood- drop off

3. How to freecycle - post on freecycle for free. Everything is free on freecycle!

4. Host a yard sale or donate to a charity yard sale in town

5. Register for Facebook's Yard Sale sites- post online

REUSE if far more sustainable than disposal.

All bulky items must have a sticker to be picked up curbside. Stickers are $25/per bulk item and are available at the town hall. When you have your sticker in hand, then call DPW 781.762.1413 to schedule the pick up of your bulk item(s). Or you can obtain a residential permit and drop it off at the Winter Street Compost Site. Call DPW at 781.762.1413 for more information.
