Default Where to dump large items and how much it costs you in SJ?

I'm a San Jose resident. I have some junk thats accumulated from unwanted furniture, home projects, renovations, that I just want to pack in my sedan and throw away. I hear there's a landfill (Zanker) near Milpitas that will charge about $25 per cubic yard, since they are a private company.

That sounds too pricy from what my coworker has told me. My coworker, who resides in Pleasanton, said his city's dump charged him $6 to unload whatever amount was on his car last time he visited, as long as he showed that he was from Pleasanton.

Does San Jose have a place like my coworker does, or where do you get rid of a lot of big junk and how much it costs? Thanks.

i live in unincorporated san jose and we get notices in the mail from the city about when they have a free weekend to get rid of unwanted junk in the neighborhood, they come in and set up dumpsters and just show your a legit local and dump your junk, every year or so.

You can rent one of those dumpsters that they drive to you and put in your driveway.

You can then toss all the junk.

You can also go through your house and do a complete cleanout.

When you are done, call the dumpster company and they drag it away.

You can check craigslist for possible companies. Just go to "services" and type in "dumpster".
