Schedule a Bulky Item Pickup through the the City of Burbank Public Works Department:

Note:  bulky items are not recycled and will get crushed in the truck and taken directly to landfill.  If the item is still usable it is preferred to try donation or give away at the various Burbank Buy Nothing Facebook groups first.  (scroll down to the bottom section for a full list of local Buy Nothing options)

  • Call (818) 238-3800 Mon – Fri. 7:30am – 4:00pm — 1 business days’ notice needed
  • Email — 2 business days’ notice needed.

There is a special handling fee for items like dishwashers, dryers, refrigerators, stoves, tires, washers, water heaters, etc. See our full list of accepted materials that require a special handling fee.

Refrigerators need to be empty and have their front doors removed for pickup.

See a full list of accepted materials here.

Most bulky items the City picks up are sent to landfill and not recycled, so please use this option last if possible. Your unwanted items might be given a second life if donated to others or repaired! See below for more ideas.

Are your unwanted items still in good condition? Consider giving them to neighbors who will happy to take them off your hands and put them to good reuse!
