Large Item pick-ups

Large item pick-ups can include, but aren't limited to:

  • scrap metal
  • wood
  • electronic waste (e-waste), working or broken
  • broken furniture
  • storage room clean-outs
  • athletic equipment
  • and any unsual items; they're usually recyclable too!


In an Online Work Request, be sure to mention if the pick-up is surplus or recyclable. Surplus includes items that are still in sellable quality, furniture, working electronics and equipment, and more miscellaneous items. If you're unsure which it is, give a full description of the items you want to be picked up.
