Dumpster Day Events

Find disposal & donation options

For large, bulky items, you can contact your garbage company to get a cost estimate and pickup appointment, or you can look into other pickup or donation options.

If you're not sure if something could be donated or recycled or if it's hazardous waste, search Metro’s Find a Recycler tool, call 503-234-3000, or submit a question.

Or take a look at these drop-off and pick-up options for recycling, donation, and disposal.
