Curbside Bulky Service Collections are by Request Only
Bulky item collection is by request only. Residents can schedule a request below.
One collection per week of up to 3 bulky items is free of charge. Requests for more than 3 items at a time will incur charges. If you request more than 3 items, we will contact you to discuss payment.
Bulky item set outs must be at the curb, and clear of all obstructions (cars, mailboxes, fences, poles, anything of value). We are not able to collect in alleys. Trucks use a mechanical arm to retrieve items and drivers will not collect if there is any risk of damaging property.
Proper method to prepare a bulky item(s) for collection
Bulky Brush Collections are by Request Only
Yard waste customers are entitled to two (2) free bulky brush pickups per year as part of their paid subscription service. Call 919-560-1200 to schedule an appointment for bulky brush collection. Your bulky brush must not exceed 4 cubic yards, which is approximately equal to one average size pickup truck. Excess debris is subject to additional charges that must be approved by the customer before collection will be made.
Proper Bulky Brush Placement
Items are picked up mechanically using a special "boom truck". For safety reasons, items placed for collection must NOT be placed under low hanging wires or tree limbs. Do NOT cover or obstruct water meters, fire hydrants, telephone boxes, etc. with items or brush to be collected. Also, do NOT place items near or on top of underground sprinklers, decorative stones, or other items that may be damaged during the collection process.
Preparation of Bulky Items and Brush
Make sure manholes are not covered by debris
Do not cover fire hydrants
Items are too close to low hanging tree limbs
Do not lean items against other objects
Brush should be stacked together
This is not a bulky Item set out. Call 919-560-1200 to report an illegal dump.
Placement for Townhouse Communities Collected by the City
Narrower streets, especially when combined with parked vehicles, low hanging power lines, utility poles, and other objects can make collection by the City's boom trucks dangerous, if not impossible, to complete. Contact your property management company for the designated area(s) to place your items for collection.
There are certain items that are prohibited from this weekly curbside service. Examples of these types of items include:
Glass / Mirrors / Windows
Wood / Pallets / Lumber
These items should be disposed of at the City's Waste Disposal and Recycling Center, 2115 East Club Boulevard.
