Bulk Item Collection

Some items—including mattresses, furniture, and appliances—are too large to be accepted for regular curbside collection in Baltimore County. These are known as bulk items.

Baltimore County does not currently provide bulk item collection service, but the County will institute a residential collection program for bulk items starting January 1, 2022. Further information about this program will become available as the starting date approaches.

Alternatively, private bulk item collectors can be found in the Greater Baltimore Yellow Pages under the "Rubbish & Garbage Removal" section. Since there are several different versions of phone directories you may also want to search "Bulk Hauling," "Garbage Collection," "Trash," etc.

County residents may take bulk items to all three Baltimore County drop-off facilities, at no charge. Please note that the County does not offer assistance in unloading these items at the facilities.

You may also wish to consider donating any usable items. The Reuse Directory (PDF) is a guide to organizations that accept a broad range of donated items including appliances (large and small), beds, building materials, furniture, rugs and more.

For more information, please call customer service at 410-887-2000 or email
