Drop-off Facilities for Residents

Bulk Garbage & Metal Recycling
The City no longer offers the free bulk garbage or recyclable metals collection. As well, it has discontinued the $45 bulk collection. 

If you want to have your bulk garbage picked up at your residence you will have to arrange for a collection with a private hauler. There are multiple companies listed in the yellow pages under Garbage Collection. They will provide this service for a fee. Another option is to bring the bulk items to the Robin Hood Bay Waste Management Facility's Residential Drop Off during it's normal hours of operation.
