Need to get rid of an old appliance or something too large to fit into a residential trash bin?
The first of four spring bulky waste cleanup events is scheduled for Saturday, March 22 at two locations in Fayetteville.
Crews will accept bulky items from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Owl Creek School, 375 N. Rupple Road, and at the city’s Recycling & Trash Collection facility, 1560 S. Happy Hollow Road.
Residents are asked to bring a copy of a recent water bill to verify Fayetteville residency.
There are limitations on what can be accepted at the cleanups:
Items allowed: Furniture, such as couches, chairs and mattresses; large appliances, such as refrigerators, stoves, lawn mowers, hot water heaters, washers and dryers; and renovation materials, such as carpet, padding, vinyl flooring, drywall and paneling (limited amounts only, no contractors allowed).
Items not allowed: Electronic items, such as TVs and computers, household hazardous items, such as medical waste, paint, thinners, solvents, batteries, cleaning chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, tires and automotive fluids; household or commercial garbage; and yard waste, such as limbs, brush, leaves and grass.
Residents may dispose of one freon-bearing appliance for free. Additional freon-bearing appliances may be disposed for $20 each.
Electronic waste items may be dropped off at the Washington County Household Hazardous Waste facility, 2615 Brink Drive, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
