Bulky Item Pickup Service

Lakewood’s trash collection contractor offers an additional service for large item pickup.

This free service is designed to help residents dispose of certain types of bulky or awkward household items, such as old mattresses, water heaters, sofas and chairs.

Residents can request up to six free collections per single family residence each year, for up to six items per scheduled collection.

Before arranging for pickup, consider donating items to a charity that will pick up from your property. See the PDF under "Related information."

Not eligible for pickup:

  • Hazardous waste
  • Old auto parts
  • Machinery and other industrial discards
  • Oil, grease, and other liquids
  • Building materials such as bricks, lumber, old roofing materials, dirt, and broken concrete
  • Excessively large items, such as whole tree trunks and large limbs

For hazardous waste like paint, oil, and household chemicals, go online or call (888) CLEAN-LA for a schedule of County-sponsored HHW/E-waste roundups.

The city’s bulky item collection program is suspended during the tree recycling program offered the two weeks following Christmas Day. It returns in January.
