MILPITAS LARGE ITEM PICKUP AND CLEANUPS

Have unwanted items piling up? Need to clear some space in your garage or backyard? Milpitas residents have several options to dispose of bulky items.

BULKY ITEM/ON CALL CLEAN-UP PROGRAM (for Single-Family Households)

Single-family residential customers in Milpitas are entitled to 4 FREE bulky item/clean ups in a rolling 12-month period (must be scheduled at least 8 weeks apart). This pick-up service works for 1 large item (such as a mattress, piece of furniture, or an appliance) or you can fill 2 1.5 cubic yard white bags for loose items.

Call Milpitas Sanitation at 408-988-4500 to set-up a convenient time, fill up your bulky bag (delivered by Milpitas Sanitation), and leave your item on the curb for pick up.

For large junk removal projects, you can rent a debris bin (Single Family Residential Rates – Milpitas Sanitation), fill it up, and schedule a pick-up from Milpitas Sanitation.
