Bulky Item Pick Up
The City of Modesto offers its residential garbage service customers a convenient way to dispose of large bulky
household items via the Bulky Item Collection Program. Each residential garbage service customer may have two pick-ups
per calendar year. Residents must contact their
garbage company to set a
collection appointment. Items should be placed out the evening before the scheduled collection day.
