MALIBU—The City is partnering with Waste Management to host a free curbside bulky item pickup service for the community on Saturday, October 14.

Household Bulky Items are oversized items that will not fit into a solid waste bin, such as a mattress or a sofa. Residents are encouraged to donate gently used items to charitable organizations or thrift shops. The City organizes a bulky item collection day for residents every year for those who are unable to donate items.

For community members to schedule an appointment they can:

  • Call Waste Management’s Service Center at 800-675-1171 before 12:00 PM on Friday, October 13. The Service Center hours are 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM. Universal Waste Systems customers may call 800-631-7016 for bulky item disposal options.
  • Describe what items need to be collected so that the bulky item collection can be properly routed.
  • Place bulky items at your curbside before 6:00 AM on Saturday, October 14. The bulky items may be picked up by a different truck and driver than your normal waste hauling service.
  • Maximum of seven items per household.

Acceptable items include household appliances, furniture, carpet, mattresses, stereos, electronics and refrigerators.

Non-acceptable items include tires, household hazardous waste (paint, motor oil, batteries) spas, camper shells, cast-iron bathtubs or items requiring more than two persons to safety handle. Bulky items cannot exceed eight feet in length, four feet in width or weigh more than 150 pounds.
