A large/bulky item is generally considered a piece of furniture (excluding sleep sofas).  Items like couches, love seats, bureaus, dressers, tables, lamps, chairs, wooden bed frames and ottomans are some examples. ALL LARGE ITEMS PUT OUT FOR COLLECTION MUST ORIGINATE FROM THE RESIDENCE WHERE THE ITEM IS PUT OUT FOR COLLECTION. DPW reserves the right to deny collection of any large item for any reason.  The collection of bulky/large items is intended to provide a free service to residents in the program. It is not intended to provide a means of disposal for junk collectors, landlords or residents and non-residents NOT in the program.
