Bulk Pickup

UPDATE: Residential bulk collection is expected to resume in late April. The service was suspended during the winter season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Signup for email updates on City services at www.troyny.gov/connect

Items such as furniture, appliances, carpets, mattresses, etc. may be picked up by scheduling an appointment with the Department of Public Works (DPW) dispatcher at (518) 270-4579. Do not place bulk items curbside prior to contacting DPW. Doing so will violate City Code and you may be assessed a fine.

The following properties, including but not limited to, shall not receive bulk refuse collection from DPW:

  • commercial rental properties (offices, retail businesses, commercial apartment buildings)
  • not-for-profit agencies

These properties shall be responsible for bulk refuse removal through the use of private contractors.

There is a $25.00 haul charge for all scheduled bulk collections up to 2 cubic yards (example: washer and dryer side by side). Non-owner-occupied properties will be charged an additional fee based upon specific bulk waste items. Owner-occupied properties are exempt from itemized charges. A breakdown of waste types and pricing is below.

If you wish to dispute a bulk violation charge, please complete a Bulk Hauling Dispute Form. Please return in-person to the Mayor’s Office at City Hall, or by mail to:
