Regarding large item/furniture pickup procedures with Waste Management.
  
If furniture/items are in good condition, call St. Matthew's Thrift Store (239-774-3315), as they will generally pickup the item from your home free of charge.
  
The local Salvation Army will also pickup donated items. Call 800-SA-TRUCK (800-728-7825) or 239-337-0955.
  
Waste Management recommends that owners break down smaller items and throw into dumpsters if possible.  They also ask that electronics and other hazardous materials be taken to the collier county recycle center off of Goodlette-Frank Rd.
