Bulk Garbage Items
A $15 Bulk Pick-Up sticker is required for the pick-up of large items. Examples of bulk garbage items are:
- Bathroom vanity
- China cabinets
- Exercise equipment
- File cabinets
- Hot water tanks
- Kitchen cabinets
- Lawn mower
- Love seats
- Mattresses and box springs
- Refrigerators (also required certified sticker stating Freon has been removed)
- Small pianos/organs
- Snow blower
- Table and chairs
- Washing machines
Carpet also requires a bulk tag and must be cut into bundles no greater than 4 feet in length with each bundle weighing less than 40 pounds. Only one bulk tag is needed for carpeting whether one room or whole house.
Although there are some exceptions, the basic rule to follow is that if an item exceeds 4 feet in length or height, or it exceeds 40 pounds in weight, a bulk sticker is required for its pick-up. A sticker is required for each large item. Call the office at 412-788-4888 if you are not sure if a sticker is needed. You do not need to call the Township office to make arrangements for pick-up of large items.
Buying a Sticker
Bulk Tags may be purchased online or in-person at the Township building for $15.00 per tag. There is an additional 3.00% fee if using a credit/debit card or a $1.00 flat fee if using a checking/savings account. If paying cash, please have the exact amount.
You may also mail a request to the office with a check payable to North Fayette Township for the appropriate amount. If paying by cash or check, the total cost of the Bulk Sticker is $15. Write "Bulk Tag" on the outside of the envelope and be sure to include a note with your name, address, phone number in case there would be any questions and specifically name what the item is that needs to be picked up. The sticker can then be mailed to you. We reserve the right to reject any bulk item. Bulk Stickers can also be purchased at the Township office Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00am - 4:30pm.
Check With Appliance Dealers
Many appliance dealers will remove the old item when they deliver a new appliance. Be sure to ask your dealer when scheduling a delivery.
Refrigerators, Freezers, Air Conditioners
A bulk sticker is required for these items, but another sticker is also required from a certified technician showing the Freon has been removed. The Township cannot pick up an item that contains Freon. To save the cost of paying someone to remove the Freon and then purchase a bulk pick up sticker, you can call 1-888-Go-Freon (1-888-463-7366) and they will come out, remove the Freon and remove the item.
We cannot sell bulk tags for televisions or computer monitors. E-waste (electronic waste) items can no longer be taken to the landfill.
