WILSONVILLE, OR — The City’s popular Bulky Waste Day returns on Saturday, May 22, 9 am-1 pm, at Republic Services (10295 SW Ridder Rd.) in Wilsonville. The event is provided in partnership with Republic Services, the City’s franchised recycling and waste hauler.
Twice a year, Bulky Waste Day provides an opportunity for Wilsonville residents to dispose of large or unusual items that cannot be picked up curbside. Proof of residence is required on site; this opportunity is available only to Wilsonville residents.
There is no charge to dispose of bulky waste items. In lieu of payment, organizers request that participating residents donate new, wrapped toiletry items – including soap, shampoo, laundry soap, deodorant, paper towels, etc. – to help Wilsonville Community Sharing’s Food Bank provide critical assistance to local families in need.
Because of the ongoing pandemic, this is once again a ‘contactless’ event – participants are asked to wear masks and remain in their vehicle. Republic Services staff, wearing masks and gloves, are unloading all items to be disposed.
Bulky Waste Day accepts many items otherwise hard to dispose of, including dishwashers, televisions, refrigerators, computers, monitors, stoves, dryers, water heaters, couches, mattresses, scrap metal, tables and chairs, and clean, untreated wood.
The program does not accept construction debris of any type, propane bottles or canisters, paint, batteries, solvents, thinners, household garbage or car tires.
