How to dispose of old privacy fence?

Im a young, new homeowner and I recently just cut down a portion of privacy fence on my house. How do I dispose of this? Im assuming its too big for a garbage man to take, or will they take it? Or do I have to rent a dumpster or something? That seems like it would be expensive just to get rid of a few slabs of fence. Any help is appreciated!

Heres a photo of what I cut down:

Who's your trash service? Is it the local government? Or a private contractor?

In either case, just call 'em up and ask for a "bulk trash" or "junk" pick-up. They will probably tell you how those are handled. Sometimes it's on recycling day. Sometimes it's ONLY the Xth day of the week/month. Sometimes they'll take it, but charge you. Sometimes it's free.

Just call. This is quite common and they should be able to accommodate you easily.

Put the photo on your local Craigslist.

Someone will want it, and they will haul it away for you too

What in the heck does this mean?The only thing I didn't like was the toilet paper situation. I'm sure I'd manage just fine though

Darn, you beat me to it, this is what I was going to say. You'd be shocked at the things people will pick up from Craigs List.

We got rid of several things last year when we moved into our new home. We put everything in the front yard and listed it on Craigs List as first come, first serve. Everything was gone within hours-including an old rotten picnic table.

The answer to your question needs to come from your own town or sanitation department. Each will have their own rules for bulk pickup. For example, in my town you can put out bulk items on your second collection day of the week. Where my mom lives, you can put out bulk items any time. Where my sister lives, you have to call for a special bulk pickup for which a fee is charged. There may also be restrictions on the number of items, whether they can be metal, etc.
Also, if your sanitation dept. won't take the fence, they may have a dump you can bring it to.
Look for your town's website or call your city hall!
Good luck with your new home!

Our regular town garbage would take them as they are- I would put a few pieces out each garbage day.

I put mine out by the street with a sign saying free wood. I had several people stop and take portions of it to use for crafts. Old wood pieces like that are very popular with crafty people.

Another option would be freecycle.

I would put it out front and put a sign on it saying free. If you can get rid of it that way great, if not you might have to call your city and ask about pick up or dump.
DON'T BURN IT!!! That is pressure treated wood and if you burn it I can't begin to tell you what chemicals you will breath in and poison your neighborhood with.
I just took down a fence and I had to cut the pieces in 4 ft lengths and bring them to our town dump, we don't have large trash pick-up in our town, only the weekly garbage. And if you leave it on the street here you get a ticket. (And the wrath of neighbors)
