Got a broken sofa or saggy mattress taking up space at your place that needs to get tossed? Here’s how to get rid of big trash items in Guilford County.
In Greensboro city limits
Leave most large items at the curb on your regular trash pickup day.
Some items, such as large appliances, can be picked up by appointment by calling 336-373-2489. (Remove or secure the doors so small children can’t be injured or trapped inside. Clean out all food and debris. Don’t place under low hanging wires or tree limbs.)
Electronic waste: Items, such as old TVs or computers, can be collected by appointment for free. Schedule a pickup at 336-373-2489 at least two business days before your regular collection day.
