How do I get rid of furniture or mattresses?

The Town of Ballston has junk pickup for Town residents every few years. When pickup is scheduled, information will be posted on the website and residents will receive a flyer in the mail from the collection company hired by the Town. Click HERE for more information. 

If there is no junk pickup this year or you have missed it:

For items in good condition that you would like to donate:

Please contact the organization before donating to confirm they can accept your item(s):

For items that are no longer usable:

  • Contact your waste collection company for their policies and fees:
    • County Waste - 518-547-1518
    • Twin Bridges - 518-267-3400
  • The Town of Colonie landfill allows non-residents to dispose of some items (not kitchen garbage) - call first to confirm they can accept your item(s) and inquire about fees: 518-783-2827
  • An online search for "furniture disposal" or "mattress disposal" should yield the names of some local junk removal companies
