The Solid Waste Services of Raleigh offers residents a Bulky Load Collection. But there are some rules to follow. Here’s how they spell it out on their website:
“A Bulky Load at a single address is limited to four (4) cubic yards, which is equivalent to filling the bed of a standard-size pickup truck. To maintain the efficiency of our crews, please accumulate several items prior to scheduling this special collection. Yard waste, large appliances, computers and televisions are not included in Bulky Load as these items are banned from landfill disposal. Excess bags of garbage that would normally be put in the garbage cart will not be collected. No odor-causing waste will be collected. You must call ahead to schedule a Bulky Load Collection. A collection for a specific address can be scheduled no more often than every 90 days. Once your collection has been arranged, place all items at the curb as Solid Waste Services employees will not enter your yard to collect items for disposal. Items placed at curbside without scheduling ahead for a bulky load collection will not be picked up by regular garbage, recycling or yard waste collection crews, and are subject to or will be assessed administrative fees and civil penalties according to Section 7 of Raleigh City Code.”
Also take note that this service isn’t provided to anyone living in an apartment or a community that has a dumpster for their garbage collection. Kind of restrictive don’t you think? Surely, they mean well and can only do so much but they certainly don’t leave a lot of wiggle room when it comes to variables. Like suppose the junk you want to get rid of is bigger than 4 cubic yards? Does that mean you’ll have to wait another 90 days before you can get it picked up? What about that part of having to drag everything down to the curb? Yes, that works when you take out the weekly garbage but if you’re tossing out an old fridge or couch you’re not going to be able to easily get that item down to the street.
