Large Item Pickup Program
The Town of Trumbull offers an annual Large Item Pickup Program to help residents dispose of items that are difficult for most homeowners to transport. The program begins in April and continues through the end of September. There is no additional charge to use the Large Item Pickup Program.
Large Item Pickup is by appointment only. Each household may only schedule one pickup each year. Residents may begin to schedule appointments with the Department of Public Works beginning on March 1 by calling 203-452-5070 or 203-452-5071. The Department of Public Works can schedule large item pickups only on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Residents should schedule appointments early because they fill up quickly. Households are only allowed to reschedule their pickup appointment once. Requests to reschedule must be made at least one day prior to the originally scheduled pickup date.
Day of Pickup
Please have all disposal items placed at the curb in an orderly fashion by 7:00 AM on the date of the appointment. Items must be easily accessible to Town equipment and personnel.
If the discard pile is a unorganized or inaccessible to Town equipment and personnel, the Town reserves the right to bypass the scheduled pickup and the household will forfeit their pickup opportunity for the year.
Please do not put items under low electrical wires or low hanging branches since they will interfere with the equipment used to pick up the items. The Town will not take anything packed in bags or boxes.
Please call the Highway Department at 203-452-5070 for questions.
