Bulky Trash Pickup
The Bulky Trash Pickup program is focused on "bulky" items, ie. large items not suited for regular curbside pickup (see below FAQs for further details). Scheduling and payment has been streamlined for a better online experience. Residents are allowed to schedule a pickup for a maximum of 5 items for $50. That is, whether 1 item is scheduled for pickup or 5, the price is $50.
- 5 "bulky" items for $50 (up to 5 items, min. $50)
- For select items (eg. mattresses & TVs) there is a separate $35/item fee (this fee is separate from the 5 for $50 fee)
- Excluded list includes construction material & larger-sized items (see below)
If items are small enough to put in a blue bag, please throw them out on your regular trash day. If the item can be broken down to fit in a bag, please do so and throw it out on your trash day.
The Town of Natick will continue to provide bulky waste pickups on Mondays (except Monday Holidays and Mondays during Fall leaf collection), to all residents that we currently serve for curbside collection of trash and recycling.
If you submit your request by 3:00pm Thursday, your pickup day will be the following Monday. If that date is a holiday, add an additional week. If the capacity limit is exceeded, you will receive an email from the DPW with a new date for pickup. The order is first come first served.
** If a resident's bulky collection is urgent or need scheduling flexibility, there are a number of private local waste hauling companies that offer residential collection of bulk waste items at a reasonable fee. **
The Natick Recycling Committee holds annual electronic recycling events which will be posted on the website.
For select items (incl: mattresses, box springs, TVs, laptops and monitors) there is a $35 EACH fee. If you ONLY have these select items, you will only be charged a $35/item fee (5 for $50 fee not required). The Town of Natick is charged for disposal of these items due to the change in regulations.
Any metal items can be brought to the recycling center free of charge.
Please email the DPW with questions at email@example.com or call 508-647-6550.
NOTE: after payment is processed, refunds will not be given.
