Every multifamily building may receive 1.5 cubic yards of free bulky item collection per unit annually. Items eligible for this service include furniture, large boxes and the items shown in the Multi-family Residents tab.

For example a 15 unit building is eligible for 22.5 cubic yards of bulky material collection per year along with the additional appliance, electronics, tires, mattresses and carpets permitted per pickup.

Tracking Usage:

Your billing statement will reflect your building’s eligible allotment for bulky pickup, as measured in cubic yards. Your annual allotment will be calculated with this formula: 1.5 cubic yards X the Number of Units = Total Yards Per Year. With each Bulky Collection the allotment will decrease by
the volume collected, and the remaining balance will be reported on the next bill.

Schedule Your Collection:

1. Curbside Collection
– Schedule collection at the curb for your resident(s) as requested.
– Recommended for buildings with easy curbside access and 20 units or fewer.

2. Debris Box Collection
– Schedule collection for the building by requesting a debris box. Request a site visit for box placement and collection requirements.
– Promote event to maximize participation.
– Recommended for buildings with 15 or more units.

3. Resident Self-Schedule
– Submit a waiver to permit resident scheduling.
– Recommended for buildings 5 to 14 units without on-site property managers.

To schedule call 510-613-8710.
