Solid Waste Program Solid Waste Projects Bulky Waste Publications


NEWMOA prepared a series of guides to help local government officials in rural communities to better understand the options available for reusing and recycling furniture, mattresses, carpet, and large rigid plastic items, and to develop strategies for managing these wastes and diverting them from landfill disposal.

NEWMOA developed handouts customized for its partner locations for residents that include local options for reuse, recycling, and disposal of bulky items.

Finally, NEWMOA created two writable template versions of the handouts so that additional communities could customize their own information based on their needs. Note: You will need Adobe Reader Version 8 or newer to edit these forms. Be sure to save the form on your computer as a PDF before editing the document.

  • Template 1 - For use in communities where there are local recycling opportunities
  • Template 2 - For use in communities encouraging proper disposal as the best option
