How to Chunk Your Junk

  • Enter the line at First Street and North County Road, heading southbound First Street. The line opens at 8 a.m. All other entrances will be blocked off.
  • An attendant will check your water bill and ID, and ask about your items to best assist you on where to drop off. Please drive slow and read all signs, if you miss your drop-off location, you must re-enter the line at First St. and North County Road 
  • Do not block lanes, or pull up alongside open-top containers. The disposal will be in the same order as listed above, so please plan accordingly to avoid holding up the line.
  • If you need help with a heavy item, an attendant will assist you. Otherwise, Chunk Your Junk is a self-service event, and we ask that you please unload your own items. We are unable to accept commercial accounts and/or quantities; vehicles must be able to unload in 5 minutes or less at each station.
  • For safety reasons, no walk-up items can be accepted.
