Bulky Item Pick Up
From free pickup to free pickup plus $50, here are the best ways to dispose of your oversized items in Chicago.
For stuff that still has some life left, consider these options. They're better for the environment and better for the wallet.
Refrigerators and freezers:
ComEd pays $50 for working fridges or freezers and provides free pickup. Schedule a pickup.
Appliances, furniture, and clothing:
The Salvation Army offers free pickup of furniture, appliances, and clothing in good, working condition. Dishwashers and air conditioners are excluded. Don't forget to request your donation receipt for your taxes! Schedule a pickup.
The City offers free pickup for oversized items. Items picked up are taken to the landfill. Call 3-1-1 to request service.
• Refrigerator and freezer doors must be removed for pickup by the City.
• The City cannot pick up TV's and computer equipment because they are banned from landfills in the State of Illinois. Please take old computer equipment and TVs to the Household Chemicals and Computer Recycling Facility.
TIP: Many appliance stores will pick up old appliances for free when delivering new ones if you ask.
