Trash, Recycling and Bulky-Item Pickup in the Village

Everything you need to know about trash, recycling and bulky-item pickup in the Village can be found in our Trash, Recycling and Bulky-Item Pickup flyer. This informational flyer also is available for download below and can be found in the Resident Services documents section on the Village website.

It may be tempting to try to sneak a TV, microwave or other bulky item in your trash or recycle container, but Waste Management will not service (empty) a container that holds “contaminated” items—bulky items that are not supposed to be in there. 

If you have a bulky item you need gone, there is a simple procedure in place to properly remove some of the unwanted or broken clutter from your life. 

Waste Management has reinstated its free bulky-item collection on the third Saturday of every month. Residents must call Resident Services at 949-597-4600 prior to setting out bulky items. Place items near your trash enclosure or the same location where you place your trash carts on Friday night or before 7 a.m. on Saturday. 

In-home bulky-item pickup remains suspended until further notice due to coronavirus-imposed social distancing practices.
