How do I get rid of items that won’t fit in my PAY-T trash bag?

If an item weighs less than 20 pounds but will not fit in a trash bag (irregular shaped items such as a mop) you may tie a small PAYT bag to it. Bulk items are defined as any household item weighing over 20 pounds that cannot be recycled and will not fit into a Pay As You Throw Bag. Appliances, Televisions, Computers, and Electronics are prohibited from this program and may be disposed of by calling Waste Management at 800-972-4545 to schedule a “White Good” pickup or waiting for an Electronic Waste Event. If your item is a bulk waste item, the following applies:

Residents may call Waste Management at 800-972-4545 and purchase and schedule a bulky waste pickup for $17, or may purchase a sticker at a participating retail store for $12 (rates as of July 1, 2020). If you choose to purchase a sticker from a store, the pickup MUST still be scheduled by calling Waste Management. Bulk waste pickups are collected on MONDAY only and must be scheduled by the Thursday prior to the pickup date. Check the List of Retail Stores that carry the bulk waste sticker.
