Bulky Items

Residential and single-family subscribers are eligible for FREE collection of appliances, furniture, eWaste, and tires. These bulky items cannot exceed 150 pounds per item and must be easily lifted by two people. This free service includes 2 bulky items per month for residential pickup. Items that don't meet these requirements will be subject to charge. You must contact PSDS at 760-327-1351 to arrange for this special pickup. 

After you have scheduled the pickup, bulky items should be brought to the curb and will be collected on your regular service day. Contact PSDS to receive instructions about placement of the articles for collection. 

PSDS also offers bulky item dropoff services periodically during some shredding and e-waste collection events. Please review notices for these special events to see if bulky items will be collected.
