Free Bulk Waste Collection

In an effort to assist residents in their spring cleaning, Burlington City Council will waive bulk waste collection fees starting on March 4. The promotion will run until April 26. Only residential sanitation customers that currently receive bulk collection services are eligible for this promotion. The normal bulk collection fees are $6.75 per “bite” of the bulk trucks.

Pickups for bulk waste occur on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, and are collected by specially-equipped trucks. Residents must place all bulk waste out one day prior to their neighborhood’s normal trash pickup day. Residents must separate bulk waste by category: bulk junk, white goods and metals, and bulk yard waste. Several pickups may be needed to collect all items.

Bulk waste includes items such as mattresses, furniture, rolled carpet, metals, yards waste, bulk limbs, and appliances. Items such as scrap tires, lead acid batteries, oyster shells, lumber, building materials, and auto parts will not be collected.

For a full list of what can and cannot be collected, and for more information on Bulk Collection, go to Questions and concerns may be directed to the Burlington Sanitation Division at 336.222.5111 or by email at
