Bulky Goods

What are bulky goods?

Bulky goods as defined by the Public Service Commission: 1.8.b “Bulky goods” means items or materials which cannot be reasonably and conveniently collected during regularly scheduled weekly pickups,  

By mandate of the WV Public Service Commission, CSR §150-9-6.6, your monthly garbage service fee includes a schedule for the removal of oversized items including, but not limited to:
  • appliances
  • furniture
  • tires off the rim with a radius of no more than 16.5 inches
  • bicycles
  • and items that are at least 3 feet in length, width, or height, or at least 50 pounds in weight

  • hazardous waste
  • items that can easily be divided into bags/boxes/containers

Most haulers offer the bulky goods pickup service once per month and require a courtesy call to schedule items to be picked up.  Please call your garbage hauler for their bulky goods schedule information.
