The District provides a monthly bulky item service for the disposal of some appliances and furniture, and will collect two such items from each household approximately every thirty days. For more details, please call (714) 893-3553 at least one week in advance of a request for service.
Normal items that are picked up are: furniture, appliances, patio furniture, large toys, lawn care equipment, mattresses, and water heaters. No carpet or rugs, glass or mirrors, construction materials, wood or fencing. The District will now pick up your television sets and computer monitors as bulky items.
The District DOES NOT collect abandoned items of personal property in the public right-of way or undertake nuisance abatement activities on private property. Patrolling public or private property and keeping it clean to prevent nuisance conditions is a traditional city/county function and responsibility, and is typically performed by city/county public works and police departments who are vested with constitutional police powers, public works powers, and taxing powers to perform and fund this function.
Household Hazardous Waste can still be disposed of free of charge at the Hazardous Waste Center located at 17121 Nichols Street in Huntington Beach. For more information on this center, call the Household Hazardous Waste Hotline at (714) 834-6752, or visit this site near Beach Boulevard and Warner Avenue from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
