Waste – Going Green, York PANovember 25, 2020
Disposing of bulky waste is a problem that we all have to face sooner or later. Household furniture and appliances are the usual items of bulky waste, but fortunately, they can be moved quite easily for loading and dispatch. The other type of bulky waste that consists of household fixtures and fittings, like hot tub removals, garden shed removals, kitchen and bedroom cabinets, bathtubs, other bathroom white goods, and building waste are more difficult to dispose of.
Replacing the old with the new is fun. New household appliances not only offer additional features but also may save energy by using new technology. New household furniture can improve the quality of your life. A new mattress for example, manufactured by using the latest technology, will ensure a better night’s sleep and ensure you wake up rested.
Your next issue is deciding what to do with your old bulky household goods. Disposing of your bulky household waste in a responsible manner is an important consideration. Keeping your old stuff will only clutter up your house.
What is Bulky Household Waste?
Bulky household waste consists of the large items that cannot be disposed of with your normal household waste. They are the large hard-wearing items that you have no further use for. You may need to dispose of them because they are broken, or out of fashion and you have replaced them with more modern items.
How to Dispose of Bulky Household Waste in York, PA
In York, PA any household furniture and appliance items that do not seem to fit into the weight and dimension limits for regular trash, have to be scheduled for ‘Large-Item’ collection. Persons for curbside collections in the city of York may schedule no more than five household furniture, appliances, and other approved bulky items per week as needed.
Large-item collections are made year-round as part of the regular curbside service and no additional fee is charged to schedule a large-item collection. However all items must be scheduled in advance.
Large item pickup services have been interrupted due to Covid-19 regulations, but have recently resumed with modified operations and hours.

Bulky Trash that is Excluded by Local Authorities
It is important to note that not all of your bulky trash can be scheduled for collection. Please also note that failure to abide by these guidelines can result in your garbage being rejected and a fine being imposed. These excluded items must be handled privately by customers.

- Pool tables
- Car parts/seats
- Rocks/ dirt/ bricks/ blocks/ stones
- Bags or boxes, which exceed the limit for the size acceptable as household trash

Non-authorized containers such as metal or plastic drums, especially those with home-made handles cut into their sides, may pose a danger of hand and back injuries to refuse collectors. These may be treated as illegally placed trash which carries penalties for the householder.
The containers and bags used for household trash storage must be the ones that are sold specifically for this purpose and the junk to be disposed of must be secured in these correct containers and bags.
