Bulk Pick-up

Each resident is eligible for one (1) free bulk pickup per week on their regularly scheduled collection day.  A $25 fee per item will be charged for any additional bulk items.  To schedule an additional pickup or to get more information about acceptable bulk items, please call the Republic Services Bulk Pickup Line at 303-286-5400.  Please have your bulk items staged curbside by 7:00 AM on the day of your pick-up.

General Rules and Guidelines

Bulk items will be collected on your regularly-scheduled trash/recycling day.  

  • Bulk items include, but are not limited to, hot water heaters, sofas, rugs, mattresses, furniture, etc. - no single item may weigh more than 250 pounds.
  • One bulk item per weekly collection is allowed.  As a general rule, if you purchased your item as one item, it may be disposed of as one item (E.G.  mattress/boxspring).  A 3-piece living room set, however, would be considered three (3) items.
  • Bulk collection does not include commercial trash or any construction, demolition, or renovation debris. Private hauling arrangements must be made to dispose of these materials.

For items not accepted by Easttown Township's contracted hauler, contact Chester County Solid Waste Authority for additional disposal resources at 610-273-3771 or visit their website https://www.chestercountyswa.org/.
