If you have gently used furniture and other home goods, consider donating it to a thrift store. This can extend the life of the product instead of sending it to a landfill. Donating items also reduces the need to use virgin materials, creates more jobs in our local economy, provides inexpensive furnishing options, and proceeds from many thrift stores go towards helping charitable causes. Below is a list of stores at which to donate gently used items. Also consider donating to non-profits and churches with programs to help people in need.
If you have curbside recycling at your residence, you can call Republic Services at 304-366-8900 to schedule a special bulk item pick-up. Bulk item pick-up occurs on the same day as your regular trash pick-up. Please verify with Republic Services that your bulk item pick-up is eligible and ask about any guidelines to ensure proper and safe pick-up of your bulk item(s).
What is considered a bulk item?
A bulk item is either too large or too heavy to be safely and conveniently loaded into the residential solid waste collection vehicles by the personnel available. This often includes large pieces of furniture such as bed frames, mattresses, couches, etc. If an item is too big to go with your regular trash, please call Republic Services to schedule a bulk item pick-up.
