Jacksonville Sanitation offers bulk item pick-up. Fill out the online pick up request form or call 910 938-5338 to schedule a pick up of the following items:


Appliances are collected once a week, typically on Thursdays. Call Jacksonville Sanitation with the address and the type of appliance (up to two appliances each week at no charge) by Wednesday afternoon; then, have the appliance at the curb by 7:30AM Thursday morning. Each additional item after the basic service of two items will cost $10 per item to collect.

Construction & Remodeling Material

Construction and remodeling material may be collected by the City at a charge of $40 per cord, or residents may schedule the Dial-A-Truck for this type of material.

Large Piles of Limbs & Yard Debris

Large piles of limbs and yard debris that measure less than one cord (4 feet x 4 feet x 8 feet) will be picked up at no charge. For piles larger than one cord, there may be a $20 per cord charge assessed. Supervisory personnel will inspect the pile, and if a charge is assessed, we will notify you in accordance with the solid waste collection policy before it is collected.

Pallets & Tires

Pallets and tires have been banned from the Onslow County Landfill. However, City crews will collect these items once a week, typically on Thursdays.

Large Empty Cardboard Boxes

Large empty cardboard boxes may be picked up with your recycling items. Flatten the boxes and stack them at the curb on your recycle day. Please remember: Do not mix materials such as yard waste and construction material; keep these items in separate piles.


Dial a TrailerThe City’s Dial-A-Trailer program is a free service that provides residents a way to dispose of excessive amounts of yard waste, household junk, or building material.

Dial-A-Trailer is a two-ton dump truck and is available on a first-call, first-scheduled basis. When scheduled, the truck is parked at your residence between 2PM and 3PM on the scheduled day of service and picked up by 8AM the next morning. If the truck is parked on a Friday, it will be picked up 8AM the following Monday.

Items such as yard waste and household junk may not be mixed together in the truck. Only one type of material can be placed in the truck at any given time. Call 910 938-5338 to schedule Dial-A-Trailer services.
