2009 Fall Ward Bulky Waste Clean ups scheduled

2009 Fall Ward Bulky Waste Clean ups scheduled 

Bulky Waste Ward clean ups are for large bulky items only. 

 The Solid Waste and Recycling Division will sponsor four (4) Ward clean ups for the disposal/recycling of large bulky items during the Fall.  All clean ups will occur on a Saturday and will begin at 7 a.m. and end at 2 pm.

These bulky waste clean ups are specifically for large bulky items that cannot fit into a residents normal trash cart.  These clean ups will not accept bags of normal household garbage as that is handled through normal weekly curbside collection.  There are certain things that will not be accepted at the clean ups which are outlined with this information.  If you are a resident of Fayetteville, you can bring bulky items to any of the clean ups.  Please bring a recent copy of the water bill to verify residency.

If you would like to organize a neighborhood clean-up utilizing orange bags for litter disposal please contact Brian Pugh at 718-7685 or bpugh@ci.fayetteville.ar.us.
