Waste Management Begins New Services for Bulk Trash and Hard-to-Handle Household Waste on August 1

Waste Management and the City of Farmington will now offer simple, convenient and environmentally responsible ways for residents to dispose of unwanted materials that either require special handling or are too large to dispose of in a household’s trash bin.

At Your Door Special Collection® service

Waste Management's new At Your Door Special Collection® program offers a hassle-free way to safely and properly dispose of common household wastes, like paint, household chemicals and electronics. Residents will schedule a special collection pickup and receive a disposal bag from WM in the mail along with instructions. Simply place unwanted materials in the bag and place the bag in front of your home on your scheduled collection day. The local WM At Your Door Special Collection® team will retrieve the items and see to the proper disposal of its contents. There is no additional charge to Farmington residential customers for this service.

To schedule a pickup with WM’s At Your Door Special Collection® service, call 1-800-499-7587 or visit Alternatively, large electronics can be donated to reputable e-cyclers or dropped off at the San Juan County Landfill for an additional handling charge.

Bulk Pickup

Waste Management's new bulk item pickup program offers Farmington residents an easy and convenient option for the disposal of large amounts of unwanted items too large to fit in the household’s trash cart. Under the new WM bulk pickup program, residents can call to schedule a bulk material pick up on either the first Friday or third Friday of each month for $50 per scheduled pickup. This fee will be added to a customer’s monthly bill. For a bulk pickup, call 505-327-6284 to schedule your pickup.

A few things to note:

  • Same day bulk collection is not available. 
  • There are some restrictions for what is allowable in a bulk pickup and the quantity, so it’s wise to call WM’s customer service and discuss your bulk disposal needs to determine whether your item or items are eligible for collection.
