No bulk items will be collected unless the resident schedules collection online through 311 or calls (614) 645-3111. Some large items cannot be thrown away because they are too big to fit in your trash container. Residents should contact the City's 311 Customer Service Center to schedule bulk items by calling 311 or (614) 645-3111, or online at our 311.

Bulk items include, but are not limited to:

To keep your Westborough community beautiful, we ask residents to please put carts back at the appropriate apartment patio by the end of the trash pick-up day.
