Start Your Spring Cleaning with a Bulky Waste Pickup

Has your outdoor furniture or barbecue seen better days? Is your yard in need of an overhaul? The City of Folsom can help!

The City of Folsom offers Bulky Waste Pickup, a free service available three times per year to Folsom single family residential customers. It offers an easy way for residents to dispose of bulky items that do not fit in their standard garbage cans.

Acceptable items include appliances, furniture, barbecues, tires and yard waste. Up to five cubic yards may be disposed of per scheduled pickup. Bulky Waste Pickups are provided by appointment only. Due to the popularity of the program, appointments fill up fast. Requests for pickups increase by 20 percent in the spring, so book your appointment early either online or by calling 916-355-8367.

It is important to note that disposal items may not be placed curbside any sooner than one day prior to a scheduled pickup date. Avoid blocking pedestrian traffic by placing material at the edge of the street, not on the sidewalk. Crews start early! Make sure your items are out by 6 a.m. to avoid missing your appointment.

Household hazardous waste -- such as paint, motor oil, batteries, and antifreeze-- is not accepted in the Bulky Waste Pickup service. The City of Folsom offers a free Door 2 Door residential collection service for household hazardous waste. Appointments can be scheduled online or by calling 916-355-8350.
