Bulk and Metal/Appliance Collection Requests

Trash and Recycling

Bulk and Metal/Appliance Collection Requests

Please note: Appointments are based on the Town’s Trash and Recycling Calendar and are available on a
first come, first served basis. Not all items qualify for collection, some exceptions apply.

There are two ways to request a pick-up:

  1. Through the online form below:


  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 in which you will be asked to provide your zip code and address.  Next, go through the prompts in the following order:   

Press 1 for residential curbside service

Press 3 for all other customers

Press 2 for bulk request

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.
