Large/Bulky Items

Every year, Athens Services hosts three residential "Curbside Clean Up" events to dispose of unusual large items, such as couches, toilets, and refrigerators, that cannot be picked up by Athens Services’ weekly waste pick up. 

In addition, Athens Services provides free bulky item pickup for residential customers three (3) times per calendar year and up to three (3) items per pickup. Please submit your bulky item request at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled collection at 1-888-336-6100 or visit


This service is for residents of the City of South El Monte only. Residents in unincorporated County areas will not receive this service as they are assigned a different hauler.
