Bulky Items

Bulky items are items that do not fit into your trash cart. They must be something our crew can lift and will fit in the truck. Bulky items that are soaking wet or covered with snow, may be too heavy for our hauling crew to pick up.

Construction debris (eg. toilets, windows, large mirrors & glass, scrap wood, wooden outdoor furniture etc.), TVs, E-waste, appliances or hazardous items are not considered bulky items and require a different method of disposal.

Residents are limited to one (1) bulky item per week. Simply place the item at the curb on your scheduled trash pickup day.

Hazardous Waste

RIRRC’s Eco-Depot collection events help Rhode Islanders do the right thing with substances in their home that are flammable, combustible, poisonous, toxic, corrosive, or reactive. They host about 15 Saturday collections a year at our facility in Johnston, and about 32 off-site Saturday collections each year, at other spots around the state.
