Bulky-Item Collection

For items too large to fit into trash carts, residents may schedule a bulk item collection of up to five items three times annually.

Advance notice is required.

To schedule a free pick up, call Waste Managements customer service line at (760) 439-2824 at least 24 hours in advance of your collection day.

All pick-ups beyond the three times per year will consist of additional fees.

The City of Oceanside has partnered with Waste Management and Goodwill San Diego to bring you CurbUp!  The CurbUp program was designed to reroute bulky items headed for the landfill to San Diego Goodwill's Outlet Center. This program will help keep valuable resources out of our landfills. 

Oceanside residents can schedule their bulky item collection with Waste Management by calling (760) 439-2824. Waste Management will then pick up your items and deliver them to a North County Goodwill location.  If you have questions about the program please email Oceanside's Zero Waste Team at oceansiderecycles@ci.oceanside.ca.us. 


Please consider donating gently used items first before your bulk item collection call.  

Charitable organizations thrive on donations of gently used items. Some organizations will even pick them up! Below is the contact information of just a few of the local charitable organizations that provide pick up service for furniture and other household items.
