Places to Dump old furniture

The Streets Department does not accept metal oversized items or tires as part of curbside collection. Automotive tires and appliances, such as stoves, washing machines, refrigerators, hot water heaters, etc. should be taken away by a private hauler, or residents may bring these items (limit of two oversized items and four tires) to one of our Sanitation Convenience Centers.

Residents may continue to set out compactable furniture, such as sofas for collection at curbside, up to two items per week. Mattresses and box springs must be bagged and sealed in plastic mattress bags when placed curbside. Items may be set out on your regular trash day. They do not have to be bagged if taken to one of our Sanitation Convenience Centers.

These photos are examples of approved mattress disposal bags. You can find mattress disposal bags at most major retailers and home improvement stores, such as Home Depot, Lowe's, Kmart,, etc.

Televisions and computer equipment will not be collected curbside. These items may be discarded at scheduled Household Hazardous Waste events, or through other private means. Residents may also bring these items to a Sanitation Convenience Centers.
