Bulky Waste Disposal

For disposal of large or bulky items such as sofas, chairs, refrigerators, washing machines, and other large appliances that have reached the end of their useful lives, Republic Services provides additional curbside pick-up options for a small fee. For more information, call 503-636-3011.

Recycle Your Refrigerator or Freezer

Recycle your old, working refrigerator or freezer and save money and energy! Energy Trust of Oregon will pick it up for free and give you a cash incentive of $20 or $40, based on the age of the unit. It’s quick, easy, and convenient. Learn more on the Energy Trust web site or by calling Energy Trust at 1-866-368-7878.

Community Clean Up, Recycling, and Reuse Events

Community clean up, recycling, and reuse events are a great way to dispose of and/or recycle bulky waste and hard to recycle items. Additionally, at these events household items, bikes, and other materials can be collected for reuse and donation to people in need. Clean up events can also focus on natural areas, with ivy and other debris collected for composting.

The city encourages neighborhood associations, homeowners associations, and other community groups to organize smaller, dispersed clean up events. A Lake Oswego Clean Up Event Guide and sample forms that may be helpful to plan and hold a clean up, recycling, or reuse event are attached at the bottom of this page. The Guide includes who to contact for additional information and assistance.

Neighborhood Drop Boxes

Republic Services provides up to 15 donated drop boxes per year to be used for neighborhood and natural area cleanups or other special events with a neighborhood/community benefit. Find more information here, including the required Neighborhood Drop Box Application (please do not contact Republic Services directly).
