Waste Management and The City of Laguna Woods Offer FREE Monthly Bulky Item Collection

Collecting bulky items illegally left at trash enclosures, on driveways or along curbs  currently costs residents and businesses over $75,000 each year. The City franchise now requires Waste Management, Inc. to provide free collection of bulky items one day each month so that everyone can participate legally and to avoid these costs.

Bulky items are usually too large or heavy to place in a trash or recycling bin, and include such items are furniture-couches, beds, clean mattresses-television consoles, appliances and all forms of Electronic Waste (E-Waste), outdoor equipment and machinery, and other large items. Waste Management, Inc. will not collect Household Hazardous Waste (HHW), including oil, pesticides, vehicle batteries, soiled mattresses and similar items. 

The bulky item collection program is just one of the many free environmental recycling and safe disposal services available to residents, including door-to-door collection of HHW and E-Waste. Residents wishing to have their HHW picked up must get a collection box from City Hall in advance. Reservations are required for both HHW and E-Waste collections. Residents can also drop off the following items at City Hall: medicines (no liquids or controlled substances), batteries, HP printer cartridges, cell phones, small appliances, and fluorescent light bulbs. Contact City Hall at 949/639-0500 for more information or email if you have any comments about the program.
