​How to Chunk Your Junk


  • Enter the line at 1st St. and North County Rd. at 7:30 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 assign you to a lane. Lane 1 accepts all items, Lane 2 is for everything except HHW, electronics, and appliances with Freon. You may not change lanes once you are assigned, because this causes major congestion. If you entered the wrong lane, you must re-enter the line at First St. and North County Rd. 
  • Do not block lanes, or pull up alongside open-top containers. 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.
  • We appreciate you leaving your dogs at home, this is not a dog-friendly event.
