Spring 2010 bulky waste clean ups scheduled

Need to get rid of some large bulky items?

The City of Fayetteville Solid Waste and Recycling Division will sponsor four Saturday bulky waste clean ups this spring.

The clean ups are specifically for large bulky items that cannot fit into a normal trash cart. Bags of normal household garbage will not be accepted.

If you are a resident of Fayetteville, you can bring bulky items to any of the clean ups, regardless of which ward you live in. Just bring a recent copy of your water bill to verify residency.
