Bulk Pickup Policy
Everyone should know their correct bulk pickup day and place acceptable materials curbside accordingly. If the Town finds a bulk pile out on the wrong day, the Town will call Waste Pro to have it removed immediately. There may or may not be a charge applied to the resident’s waste bill, depending on the following two conditions:
1. Is the one annual free bulk pickup applicable to the property, and
2. If applicable, has the one annual free bulk pickup been used.
If a free pickup is not applicable, the customer’s account will be charged for the service. If applicable and not used, the customer’s account will be marked as having used the free pickup. If applicable and but already used, the customer’s account will be charged for the service.
Alternative Disposal For Bulk
If you have bulk items to dispose of and cannot wait for a bulk pick-up day, you may take material to the Broward County Landfill and pay a fee for its disposal. The landfill is located at 7101 SW 205th Ave., Southwest Ranches. Additional info on hours and fees is available at this link.
