WARE 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 Ware Disposal to provide free collection of bulky items one day each month so  that everyone can participate legally and to avoid these costs.

If you have curbside collection, place bulky items along the curb. If you put trash in bins,  place bulky items only in or around trash enclosure areas. Place items out no earlier than 6  p.m. the night before or by 7:30 a.m. on the scheduled collection day. No collections will be made from garages, patios or inside residences.

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. Ware Disposal 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.
