Bulky Oversized Trash

If your items are in reusable condition, please consider keeping them out of the landfill by donating them to a local charitable organization before scheduling pickup of bulky trash pickup. Many of these locations offer convenient pickup and drop off options. For a list of locations and accepted items, see The Woodlands Donation Guide

Consider recycling before scheduling bulky trash pickup. Mattresses, appliances, electronics, Styrofoam and more can be taken to local locations for special collection. For a list of locations and accepted items, see the Recycle More Guide.
