A series of Bulky Block Party events on the last Saturday of the month through June invite Oakland residents to drop off unwanted bulky household items for free disposal.
The Bulky Block Party is open to Oakland residents only – proof of Oakland residency such as a household bill will be required (no businesses please). Bring unwanted bulky items for free disposal – limits are listed below.
If you miss the event, bulky pickup service is available to all Oakland residents, including renters.
When you fill your grey container with recyclables, and put your food scraps and food-soiled paper in the green container, it is always important to avoid contamination. Remove wires and ribbons from wreaths and flower arrangements before composting. Metallic or glitter gift wrap, bags and boxes should be put in the trash when they can no longer be reused.
When you keep trash and problem materials out of the Compost and Recycling, you are giving a gift of safety to sorting workers, and a gift of quality resources to our earth and our economy.
And don’t forget to properly set out your holiday tree for collection December 26-January 12. Details here.
We’ve made a few changes to make the site more readable and easier to navigate.
We’ve added a new Bulky Pickup Services page. Bulky Pickup Services are available to all Oakland residents, including those in apartments and condos. On the new page, you’ll find information for both residents and property managers, including how to schedule an appointment, and how to properly set out materials.
