The Dial-A-Truck (PDF) program is an appointment-only service designed to assist the residents of Summit with the disposal of large, heavy bulky items at no cost. A Dial-A-Truck appointment may be made by contacting the Department of Community Services at 908-273-6404.

Accepted Items
Items must be too large to fit into a passenger vehicle. Only those items on the list will be picked up; the list is limited to five items. Construction debris from renovation projects and business trash are not permitted for collection.

Collection Restrictions

There are specific collection restrictions such as construction materials, hazardous materials, propane tanks, etc.; if you have questions or concerns about acceptable products, please contact the Department of Community Services.

Items for Dial-a-Truck collection must be placed out at curbside, but no earlier than the evening prior to the scheduled pickup. Landlords and businesses are not eligible to utilize this service. Any non-bulky items or general trash may be disposed of at the City of Summit Transfer Station. Tenants vacating apartments must not leave items at curbside prior to leaving.

Please note that leaving unauthorized items at the curb is a violation of the City of Summit Property Maintenance Code and will result in a summons and fine.
