Windsor Introduces Bulk Furniture Pickup Program

Windsor residents will now be able to have their unwanted bulk furniture items collected and taken to the landfill for them for a small fee, simply by calling 311 and booking an appointment.

Following City Council’s direction from the 2016 budget deliberations, a bulk furniture collection system has been created to help residents who are unable to take larger items to the landfill themselves.

Under the new program, each of the city’s pickup zones will see one collection cycle for bulk items per month.  Specific criteria outlining what items are acceptable and not acceptable are outlined on the City of Windsor website in the Residential Bulk Furniture Collection pages.

There is a maximum of two items per pickup and the cost for the service is $20 per item.

To book a pickup, call 311 Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., excluding holidays, and 311 staff will advise you of available dates.  A credit card can be accepted over the phone, or cash and debit can be accepted at our Customer Care Centres. All pickup appointments must be booked first by calling 311.
