There wil NOT be a Bulky Waste Collection event in 2022. The city usually tries to do this every other year, so the next opportunity for BWC will be in spring of 2023. In the meantime...
Auburn residents can always drop household waste (at no charge) at Maine Waste to Energy on Goldthwaite Road.
Construction waste, tires, freon devices, propane bottles, TVs and other electronics can be dropped at MWE for a small fee.
Electronic Waste, such as monitors & TVs, speakers, desktop copiers/printers, CPUs and laptops, keyboards/mice, etc. as well as florescent bulbs, thermostats, mercury thermometers can all be dropped at Public Works at no charge (check in before dropping items). PW will also accept brush, as long as it’s small enough to go through a chipper (12” and under). No stumps or leaves.
The Androscoggin River, Taylor Pond, Lake Auburn, No Name Pond, Sabattus Pond and other water bodies are important for economy, recreation and environment.
