Electronic waste (E-waste) is an item such as a computer monitor, television, cell phone or other like materials. Due to the high amounts of lead and chemicals found in E-waste, they are not allowed into local landfills. Refrigerators contain Freon and other chemicals which require special handling as well. CR&R will collect these items from your curbside as a bulky item pick up, to arrange a curbside pick-up for E-waste or a refrigerator, please contact customer service.
Items that cannot fit in your automated containers, such as a chair or a couch, are considered "bulky items." A bulky item is an object that can be handled by a two-person crew. Items that cannot be handled by a two person crew may be disposed of in a temporary collection dumpster by contacting our office to arrange a delivery. Large bulky items may include washers, dryers, sofas or other large materials. Each residential customer is entitled to four (4) bulky item pick-ups free of charge per calendar year of four items per pick up. Additional bulky item pick-ups over four (4) will be provided for a nominal charge. To make arrangements for a bulky item pick-up on your regular waste collection day please [contact] the office located closest to you.
