Staying Informed

AccessFayetteville provides numerous ways to stay informed about your local government.


Household Bulky Waste Pick-Up Program

The City of Fayetteville provides one free bulky waste pick-up to residents of single-family homes once a year. This service is to handle items that are too large to fit into the normal trash carts such as furniture, appliances and brush and tree bulk.

To schedule a pick-up at your home in Fayetteville please call the Solid Waste and Recycling Division at (479) 575-8398 or e-mail here.  See below for Rules and Regulations on setting out Bulky Waste for curbside collection. 

Bulky waste is divided into 3 categories for collection: Household, Metal, and Yard Waste.  You may dispose of up to 5 items within the same category per free bulky waste pick-up.  If you have multiple items in different categories, these must be picked up on different days.  Therefore, only one of those pick-ups will be free (per year).  You can opt to forfeit your free curbside pick-up and bring up to 5 accepted items in multiple categories to the Transfer Station, with your current water bill, for free.  Additional bulky waste pick-ups of up to 5 items within the same category can be scheduled for $45 plus tax.
