The City’s Household Junk Pickup program is now accepting appointments for 2015. Residential customers can make two appointments per year, from February through October, for the free pickup of acceptable bulky items, including yard waste. The same equipment and personnel used for Leaf Season in November, December and January operate the Household Junk Pickup program from February through October.
New this year is the expansion of the Appliance and e-waste pickup program. Now residents may schedule two appointments per year for appliance and e-waste collection, in addition to the two appointments for household junk pickup. Appliance and e-waste collection service is available year-round.

Household Junk Pickup Program – Two Appointments from February through October
The City will collect up to five (5) cubic yards of material (4’x4’x9’) per appointment, which is approximately the amount that will fit into the bed of a pickup truck. Extra charges may apply if the junk pile exceeds five cubic yards. Piles placed in the street for collection more than 24 hours before a scheduled appointment, or placed in the street without an appointment, will be considered illegal dumping and may be subject to fines.
Accepted household junk items include yard waste, furniture, mattresses, carpet, toys, and up to four unmounted tires. A full list of acceptable items and guidelines for the Household Junk Pickup Program can be found at www.sacrecycle.org
Appliance & E-waste Collection – Two Appointments Year-Round
Starting in 2015, residents may now also schedule two (2) appointments per year for the collection of appliances and electronic waste. Accepted items include washers, dryers and refrigerators, and up to four (4) e-waste items like TV’s, computers, monitors and printers. There is a minimum weight of at least 10 lbs. per pickup.
