Bulky item collection charges:

$10 per item for the first three items.

$30 for each item over three items. For instance: 4 items would be $60.00. 3 items would be $30.00

Some examples of items are:

Mattress and matching box spring= 1 item

Headboard, footboard and bed rails (all matching)= 1 item

Sectional sofa= 1 item
