Bulk Item Pick Up

The Calvert County Solid Waste Division offers county residents free bulk item pick-up services for many large items. Residents are permitted to bring large items to Appeal Landfill themselves.

Important Guidelines

  • There is a limit of up to three items per scheduled pick-up. If you have more, additional pick-ups dates will need to be scheduled.
  • Indoor furniture and large, indoor appliances only. See examples of eligible items below.
  • Items must be placed at the end of your driveway or property (curb line), where the front of your private property meets a public road. Staff cannot go on private roads.
  • Residents only; no businesses please
  • Pick-ups are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Refrigerant appliances, such as refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners, all require a pre-payment fee of $10.00 before pick-up is scheduled. Fee is payable by cash or check.
