Electronic Waste and Refrigerator Collection Information 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. Avalon Environmental Services will collect these items from your usual collection point as part of our bulky item collection program. To arrange for curbside pick-up of E-Waste or a refrigerator, please call our Customer Service Department for limitations, rates and further information.
Bulky Items Collection Information Items that cannot fit in your containers, such as a chair, table or a couch are considered “bulky items.” A bulky item is an object that can be handled safely by a two-person crew and may include furniture, washers, sofas or other large materials. Each residential unit or home is entitled to three (3) bulky item pick-ups free of charge per calendar year of up to two (2) items per collection. To arrange for this service or for additional information regarding acceptable items please call our Customer Service Department. Pickups by appointment only Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday
