"Bulk waste
In 2004 the Town of Cottesloe will provide 2 Bulk Waste (household junk) collections to residential properties only.

The bulk waste collection will remove:

old furniture.
stoves and refrigerators (doors removed) and other white goods.
general household items, maximum length 1.5 metres (5 feet)."
(From: http://tinyurl.com/ytyphv - Australia)

"What We CAN Collect

Acceptable bulk waste items include household appliances, tires without rims, furniture, mattresses, and trash from residential remodeling and repair operations (if the work is performed by the resident and the proper building permit is displayed). This material is taken to the Bethel Landfill in Hampton for disposal."
(From: http://tinyurl.com/yvujtq - USA)

"Bulk Waste Collection
A weekend bulky household waste collection service using a refuse vehicle which will be situated each Saturday at various sites throughout the district on a rota basis. This will allow residents to dispose of these items free of charge."
(From: http://tinyurl.com/2ftf56 - UK).

It seems to be a fairly universal term. However, if your text's target readers are in the UK, you could also consider:

'bulky waste'

which appears to be in commom usage there (cf. the UK sites from the first URL I gave).
