Bulk Pick-Up Program

The City of Fayetteville provides one free bulky waste pick-up to residents of single-family and duplex homes once per year. This service is to handle large furniture, appliances, and brush/tree limbs, items too large to fit in a normal trash cart for service. Items may not be in a bag or box. Only one category type of items may be selected for curbside bulky waste pick-up.
 

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. See below for Rules and Regulations on setting out Bulky Waste for curbside collection.

  • Items must be placed within 5-6 feet of the curbside, no alleys or side streets please. We will not collect materials directly from inside your home.

Acceptable Categories and Items:

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).
