Bulky Waste Clean-Ups

2018 Fall BulkyWaste Clean-Up Events

The Recycling and Trash Collection Division sponsors eight bulky waste clean-ups per year (four in the Spring and four in the Fall) for the disposal of large bulky items. These clean-ups are free and for Fayetteville residents only; a recent copy of a water bill is required to verify residency.
All clean-ups will occur on a Saturday and will begin at 7 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. Dates and locations are coordinated with City Council members and posted approximately one month before the clean-ups begin.

Bulky Waste Pick-Ups

he City of Fayetteville provides one free bulky waste pick-up per year to residents of single-family and duplex homes. This service is to handle large furniture, appliances, and brush/tree WNUL logolimbs. Only one category type of items may be selected for curbside bulky waste pick-up. See categories below.
You can opt to forfeit your free curbside pick-up and, instead, bring up to five accepted items from multiple categories to the Transfer Station for free along with your current water bill. Additional bulky waste pick-ups of up to five items within the same category can be scheduled for $45 plus tax.
 To schedule a pick-up at your home in Fayetteville, please call the Recycling and Trash Collection Division.

  1. Acceptable Categories and Item
  2. Service Limitations
  3. Rules and Regulations

Bulky waste is divided into three categories for collection: Household, Metal, and Yard Waste. You may dispose of up to five items within the same category per free bulky waste pick-up. If you have multiple items in different categories, these must be picked up on different days. Therefore, only one of those pick-ups will be free (per year).
