Large Item Pickup Program

Watch for New Program in Spring 2021

Port Coquitlam will launch a pilot Large Item Pickup program in spring 2021 that will enable homes receiving City waste services to schedule free curbside pickup of up to six large items per year, including mattresses, furniture, appliances, tires, exercise equipment and more.

Requested by residents for many years, large item pickup will help reduce illegal dumping and ensure discarded items are disposed of properly. It’s the latest improvement to the City’s waste services, following last year’s launch of year-round weekly green cart pickup and extra holiday recycling.

Who can take part: The new service will be available to single-family homes and multi-family units that receive City waste services and pay a garbage levy on their property tax bills.

Current status: The City is currently seeking a service provider. Once finalized, details will be provided on this page, social media, property tax notices and other methods.

Provide Feedback During the Pilot

Once the program is launched, the City will monitor the pilot throughout its first year. Participants will be invited to submit feedback through a form added to this webpage.
