City adds bulk trash pickup form online

You can now schedule a bulk pick up online at cityofwayne.com.

By Sarah Shurge – Do you have large, bulky items that you need to dispose of but they don’t fit in your trash can and you aren’t sure how to schedule a pickup for them?
The City of Wayne and Priority Waste are proud to announce the launch of their new online form for scheduling bulk item pickups.
This service is essential for disposing of common household bulk items such as: mattresses, box springs, chairs, ottomans, couches, toilets, empty hot water tanks, etc.
This new online platform is designed to significantly enhance the city’s refuse collection services, while ensuring a more efficient and user-friendly experience for residents to request special pickups for bulk items.
The City of Wayne and Priority Waste made the process as straightforward as possible.
Special pickup requests must be submitted by 3pm at least three business days (excluding weekends and holidays) before the residents’ regular trash collection day.
It is crucial for all bulk items to be placed outside the night before the scheduled service day. Pickups will occur on regular trash collection days.
If scheduled within 48 hours before the regular trash pickup day, the pickup will be scheduled for the following week’s collection day.
The City of Wayne defines a bulk item as a large piece that cannot be accommodated by the trash cart.
Please note that certain items require specific preparatory actions by the resident for collection or are not acceptable for pickup. This includes appliances, which must have freon removed by a technician and be tagged, and doors removed for safety.
Hard pieces such as stone, brick, pavers, and concrete, large entertainment centers, mirrors/glass pieces, and tires are also subject to specific handling instructions or may not be collected at all.
The introduction of the online bulk item pickup form reflects the City of Wayne’s commitment to providing efficient and accessible waste management services to its residents and is part of its ongoing efforts to ensure a cleaner, safer environment for all community members.
