Plan ahead – large & bulky item pick up scheduled week of April 9

(Penticton BC – April 4, 2018) – Residents receiving curbside garbage collection services will be able to place for pick-up and disposal two large or bulky items during the week of April 9-13. On your regular garbage day, leave these items at your usual collection point by 7:00am. Please be sure to leave a minimum of 1 meter/3 feet of space between your carts and bulky items.

Common accepted items are furniture, appliances (such as refrigerators and stoves), and mattresses. The maximum allowable weight per item is 90kg/200lbs.

Items that are not accepted are objects with gas motors, and renovation waste such as toilets, plumbing fixtures, and doors. Small appliances and electronics will not be collected, but they can be dropped off for free recycling at J&C Bottle Depot at 200 Rosetown Avenue, or at Campbell Mountain Landfill.

“The large and bulky item collection is a great time for residents to get an old piece of furniture or broken appliance to the curb that they may not have been able to get to the landfill”, said Community Sustainability Coordinator, David Kassian.  “On your regular garbage day, simply haul the item to your usual collection point and we will make sure it gets disposed of properly.”
