Residents who wish to dispose of large items are required to purchase large item stickers for $15 each available at the Municipal Offices, Newmarket Public Library, Magna Centre, Ray Twinney Recreation Complex, Old Town Hall and the Newmarket Operations Centre.
Furniture, mattresses, box springs and other large items with a large item sticker may be placed at the curb for pick-up on your regular bi-weekly garbage collection.
Carpet and linoleum will be picked up on your regular garbage day, provided it is cut up and securely tied in bundles weighing less than 44 lbs and no longer than 4 feet each. Each bundle counts towards one item limit at the curb and no sticker is required. If the item exceed your three item limit at the curb, please affix an extra bag tag to the rolled carpet.
Large metal items such as appliances, barbecues (no propane tanks), bed frames, furnaces, hot water heaters, and bicycles must be recycled and arranged to be picked up.
Purchase a large item sticker and call Green For Life (GFL) at 1-866-421-5625 to arrange for a special curbside collection. If a special collection is not booked, metal items will not be collected. For safety, remove doors from fridges, freezers and ovens. Metal appliances and scrap metal can also be dropped off at select York Region depots.
