Bulky Item Pickup Week
May 17th-21st

Bulky Item Pickup was designed to assist the residents of Cumberland in the disposal of large, oversized items that cannot fit into the green trash bags during weekly trash/recycling collection.

  • If an item, or group of items, fits in a town trash bag, the material is not considered a bulky item and will not be collected. 
  • Bulky items will be picked up on your regular trash collection day.
  • Only residential waste is accepted - no commercial trash is permitted.
  • Please consider donating any items that are in new or gently used condition: Donation Possibilities
