LARGE ITEM DISPOSAL
The City of Charlottesville offers disposal of large furniture, appliances, tree limbs and other large or bulky items that cannot fit in a trash container. This service is available for residential customers receiving weekly curbside trash pickup. To arrange for large item disposal, purchase a large item pickup at the Treasurer's Office. The first pickup will cost $35.00, the second pickup will cost $50.00, and the third and subsequent pickups will cost $100.00. After you have purchased the pickup you will need to call (434) 970-3830 to arrange a pickup date.
You may also purchase the large item pickup by mail. Please mail your completed application and applicable fee to the Treasurer's Office at the address on the form. Your confirmation number will then be mailed to you and you may call (434) 970-3830 to arrange your pickup date.
Please note that automotive parts, hazardous waste and contractor spoils MAY NOT be disposed of through large item disposal pickups. For information on disposing of such items, please contact the Ivy Landfill at (434) 295-3306 or visit the Rivanna Solid Waste Authority's webpage.
