Thanks! So there isn't a specific day - I can just arrange it over the phone with the mairie? Just curious because I saw two sofas out near two different bins on the same day and have never seen that since, so thought there was a specific big rubbish day. I know there was one in Antibes.

Thanks for your help - much appreciated!

You need to phone 0800 77 20 12 and tell them what you're throwing out. Tell them you have an "encombrant" and they will usually tell you to leave it near to the dustbins closest to your home after 7pm. If you don't phone the mairie you could theoretically be fined for putting an encombrant on the street.

good luck
