Bulky Item Fee

Curbside pickup of a bulky item requires a $10 sticker. Residents with curbside trash pickup are allowed to put out ONE bulky item (for example: sofa, chair, mattress, box spring or carpet -- no appliances or electronics) per week. 

Stickers can be purchased at the following retailers: Aubuchon, Conley's Drug, Cumberland Farms (70 Central Street location), DJ's Variety, Richdale, Shaw's and Tedford's.

This fee, approved as part of the FY19 Ipswich Operating Budget, is due to a sharp increase in the number and cost of bulky items being put at the curb by residents.

Carpet from ONE room only should be cut into 3' by 3' sections, rolled up and tied. Please note: appliances that cannot be brought to the transfer station (free) require special curbside pickup by JRM. Call to prepay a pickup at 978-536-2500.
