SOME BULKY ITEMS CAN GET COLLECTED IN OUR WEEKLY TRASH COLLECTION
Please make sure you follow these guidelines so we can best service your property. We don't want to leave items on your curb.
1. The item MUST be allowed in our trash program per the state landfill requirements
Items such as a couch or small piece of furniture are usually fine, but not all items are permitted in this collection. Below lists items we cannot take with the trash.
2. Items must be something our crew can pick up and will fit in the truck
Be mindful of weather. Bulky items that are soaking wet or covered with snow, will be too heavy for our hauling crew to pick up.
3. Items that are NOT permitted in this collection
Construction debris ( eg. toilets, windows, large mirrors & glass, scrap wood,wooden outdoor furniture etc.), TVs, E-waste, mattresses & boxsprings, appliances or hazardous items. These items cannot be collected in our town program, and do require a different method of disposal.
4. Amount Accepted
This collection is limited to one (1) bulky item per week. Plan ahead if you are moving out or cleaning out.
5. Recycling must be out for any trash to be collected
Cumberland has a No Bin No Barrel policy stating No Recycling, No Trash Collected.
6. Other Options
Consider donating if your item is still usable. When we collect a bulky item, it is going into the trash and landfilled. Donating items is a great way to help someone else, save expensive trash disposal fees, and be good to our environment.
