Bulk and Metal/Appliance Collection Requests

Trash and Recycling

Bulk and Metal/Appliance Collection Requests

All requests for bulk and metal/appliance collection are accepted by our hauling company, Waste Management.  There are two ways to request a pick-up:

  1. The Waste Management Call Center- please call 1-800-972-4545.  There will be a short series of prompts.  Below is a guide to navigate the prompts.  They will first ask if you have a customer ID.  We do not use customer ID numbers in Smithfield, so hold for the next prompt.

Press 1 for residential curbside service

Press 3 for all other customers

Press 4 for all other inquiries

That will take you right to a rep.  They will ask your town, please say Smithfield (not Greenville, Esmond or Georgiaville).  Be sure to have a pen handy as they will give you a ticket number/confirmation for the pick-up.

  1. Through the Waste Management website by using the bulk item request link below:
