Bulk Waste Information

Pay-As-You-Throw Options for Disposing of Bulky Waste

  • Buy a sticker at the Department of Public Works (cost varies, depending on the item or items) then call Republic Services to schedule a curbside pickup.
    • Residents can now purchase bulk stickers online!
  • Donating: if your bulky waste is in usable condition, please consider donating it or try giving it away using Free Cycle or Craigslist.
  • Middletown’s Bulk Waste Amnesty Days: Residents using Middletown’s Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) program can take advantage of the four Bulk Waste Amnesty Days (events will be scheduled quarterly) to dispose of over-sized material. Appointments are required, there will now be four bulk amnesty days per year.

Special Instructions

Please remove the doors from your discarded refrigerator before you place it on the street or bring it to the Recycling Center. Removal of doors is done to prevent children from playing with the appliance and inadvertently getting locked inside.

Please do not throw propane gas tanks in the trash or recycling carts. What may seem like an empty tank probably contains small amounts of gas and thus it could be hazardous to anyone that handles it. Propane tanks are to be brought to an Eco Depot.

Collection Schedule

Bulk waste is collected the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of every month.
