Free Large Item Pick-Up Available for Coquitlam Homes

by Heather Escaravage |

COQUITLAM, BC, March 2, 2017 – As spring cleaning begins, the City of Coquitlam reminds residents of the City’s free large item pick-up service – the perfect way to dispose of an old BBQ, unloved couch or other large items. 

Coquitlam’s Large Item Pick-Up service requires pre-registration and is available to all residents who currently receive the City’s curbside collection service.  Residents can have up to four large household items collected each year (July 1 to June 30) by choosing one of the following options:

  • Put out four items at the same time, once per year, or;
  • Put out one, two or three items at different times of the year (maximum four items per year).

To schedule a large item pick-up residents must call Progressive Waste Solutions Canada at 604-636-3521 and tell them how many items need to be collected (maximum four items per year) and provide an item description. 

By offering this service, the City aims to reduce public dumping of large and hard to dispose of household items. 

For more information on Coquitlam’s large item pick up service, visit the Large Item Pick Up webpage.
