Bulky Item Pick Up
Need to get rid of something that's too big to fit in your cart? From free pickup to free pickup plus $50, here are the best ways to dispose of your oversized items in Chicago.
The City offers free pickup for oversized items including furniture, appliances, and mattresses. These items will be taken to the landfill. Just call 3-1-1 to request service.
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.
• Refrigerator and freezer doors must be removed for pickup by the City.
TIP: Many appliance stores will pick up old appliances for free when delivering new ones if you ask.
