As of 2015, Waste Management's bulk waste pick-up service takes away items that are too large to fit in a standard trash can or recycle bin, including appliances, furniture, engine parts and mattresses. The service's availability varies by region, as does the definition of exactly what constitutes a bulk pick-up.
Bulk pick-ups are extra trips made by Waste Management, requiring special appointments beyond any regular trash removal schedule. Some communities have regularly scheduled bulk pick-up days, while other regions offer it on the customer's schedule. Pricing depends on the region and the item or items picked up. Quotes and the telephone number to schedule an appointment are available on WM.com.
