Large Item Disposal

Large items such as furniture (couches, dressers, mattresses, bed frames, chairs, tables, hutches, desks, shelves, etc.) are not picked up at curbside and must be disposed of at the Portland Transfer Station by paying the applicable tipping fees. Alternatively, here are a few other options for you to consider when disposing of a large item: take it to a waste disposal company near you; call a local contractor to dispose of it for you; call a family member or neighbour with the means to help you; donate a gently used item to a local charity or post it on social media; place it at the end of your driveway with a “free” sign on it.
