Bulky Items Collection

Resource Recovery & Recycling (R3) provides bulky item collection Monday - Friday. Bulky items are limited to those large items that do not fit in a refuse container, such as: refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, stoves, furniture and similar items. No yard waste, construction debris or hazardous waste will be collected. 

This service is available to both Residential and Commercial customers. Each residential unit is allocated
up to three free bulk item pick-ups a year and up to five items per pick-up. A fee may be assessed depending on the bulk or weight of the items. 

Once items have been placed on the curbside or in the alley, please call R3 at (310)-458-2223, Monday through Thursday from 8:00am to 5:00pm, and Fridays from 8:00am to 4:30pm to arrange for pick-up. For more information, please call or email us at
