Appliance and Metal Pick Up (Residential)
The City of Vaughan also collects large appliances and metal items for Vaughan residents by appointment only for a fee. Commercial-sized appliances and businesses are not eligible for this service. If the appliance is in good working condition, consider donating it to charity. Appliances can also be taken to one of York Region’s Community Environmental Centres.
Learn more about booking your collection appointment, applicable fees, acceptable items and set-out requirements, and the cancellation policy.
Appliance and metal item collection takes place each Thursday. Collection appointments booked before noon (12 p.m.) on Wednesdays will take place the same week. Collection appointments booked after noon (12 p.m.) on Wednesdays will occur the following week.

Payments are accepted by Visa, MasterCard and American Express. For multi-residential appointments, please coordinate with your Property Manager for the correct set out location.
