Bulky Block Party Events for Free Large Item Disposal

Join us on the last Saturday of every month for a Bulky Block Party to dispose of your large unwanted items — the right way, and for free! Residents only. Please bring proof of residency, such as a utility bill. Bulky Block Party events are held the last Saturday of every month from 9am to 1pm at 7101 Edgewater Drive, Oakland, CA. Oakland residents may drop off for free items that don’t fit in their trash cart at home!

Before You Throw Those Used Things Away...

When getting rid of unwanted clothes, toys and furniture, first try RE:Source, which is StopWaste’s on-line guide to reuse, repair, and recycling just about anything. It contains information on “reuse” organizations and drop-off locations. Many of the locations also sell reused items. Visit StopWaste.org.

More Tips: Many household items such as furniture, appliances, and electronics, can be repaired. Check your local area for community repair events and Fixit Clinics, and search online for repair shops in your area using the RE:Source tool. Borrow, rent, and share items that you don’t need every day. Check your local library or hardware store for tool lending opportunities.
