Disposing oversized garbage in Tsuchiura City, Ibaraki

Items that are too large to fit into the designated bags are considered oversized garbage. There are two main ways to dispose oversized garbage.

1. Take it directly to a waste disposal facility

Oversized garbage can be brought directly to the waste disposal facility (Clean Center) during reception hours.

  • Reception hours: Monday to Saturday / 9:00 to 16:00
  • A disposal fee of 130 yen per 10 kilograms is charged for general household waste. (Fees also apply for items weighing less than 10 kilograms)

For more information, please see Clean Center.

Reservations are required, so please call the oversized garbage reception hotline (029-826-4800) or apply online.
