Furniture and appliances can be placed at the curb for collection, however there are some guidelines and limitations described below. Additionally, it’s important to know that if you are working with a restoration company or other contractor, disposal services are typically included in that work and contractors should not place items at the curb for collection. Your contractor can work with Republic Services, 817-371-2424, to schedule a roll off container be provided or they can haul the waste away themselves.
- Furniture: Republic will collect up to 2 cubic yards per resident per collection (about the size of a washer and dryer side-by-side, for example). If you have a limited amount of furniture that needs disposal, place at the curb and Republic will collect as they can.
- Appliances: Dishwashers, microwave ovens, stoves, washing machines, dryers, and water heaters can be placed for collection at the curb as part of regular bulk waste collection, which is allowed at up to 2 cubic yards per resident per collection (about the size of a washer and dryer side-by-side, for example). Appliances such as freezers, refrigerators and air condition units (up to 5 ton capacity), can also be placed for collection; however, Freon must be removed and the appliance must have a certification tag stating that the refrigerant was properly removed and disposed of by a certified technician.
