Eureka Urges Residents to Take Bulky Items to Earthquake Trash – Times-Standard | Bot To News

A press release from the City of Eurkea reads:

The City of Eureka’s franchise garbage and recycling collection hauler, Recology, offers curbside collection of large and bulky items. Each customer receives up to two (2) pickups per residence per year at no additional cost. Examples of bulky items include: old furniture, refrigerators, mattresses, televisions, and appliances, all of which are too large or don’t fit in your normal collection bins. This includes up to 2 cubic yards (about the size of 2 refrigerators) of bagged trash per pickup.

The City of Eureka extends our support and concern to the community as it recovers from this week’s magnitude 6.4 earthquake. This may have resulted in more broken items for residents to dispose of and we want to ensure residents take advantage of this free pickup program. If you have already used 2 free pickups this year, you can schedule a 3rd free pickup of earthquake-related rejections by scheduling a pickup before December 31st. Please call Recology at (707) 442-5711 or (707) 725-5156 and leave a message to schedule pickup or visit

Bulky material pickup for customers within the Ureka City limits does not include: concrete, soil or hazardous waste such as batteries, paint, pesticides, fluorescent tubes or oil filters. To dispose of hazardous materials, call the Humboldt Waste Management Authority (HWMA) Household Hazardous Waste Facility at (707) 441-2005.
