Due to the high amounts of lead and chemicals found in E-waste, they are not allowed in local landfills. Since February 2006, homeowners have not been allowed to dispose of E-waste in the trash. CR&R will pick up E-waste for Canyon Lake residents at no charge. Call our Customer Service department to arrange a pick-up at (800) 755-8112.

Items that cannot fit in your automated containers, such as a refrigerator, a couch or other large materials, are considered "bulky items." A bulky item is an object that could be handled by one CR&R driver. Each residential customer is entitled to two (2) bulky item pick-ups free of charge per calendar year. Additional bulky item pick-ups will be provided for a nominal charge. To make arrangements for a bulky item pick-up please contact CR&R.
