The Dial-A-Truck (PDF) program is an appointment-only service designed to assist the residents of Summit with the disposal of large/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 you list at the time of your booking will be picked up. There is a five item limit. Construction debris from renovation projects and business trash are not permitted for Dial-A-Truck collection.


Collection Restrictions



There are specific collection restrictions such as construction materials, hazardous materials, propane tanks, unsealed mattresses, etc. If you have questions or concerns about acceptable products, please contact the Department of Community Services at (908) 273-6404.

Items for Dial-a-Truck collection must be placed out at curbside after 6pm the evening prior to your 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 schedule a pickup prior to leaving items curbside where the same Dial-A-Truck rules apply (e.g. limit of 5 items).

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