Need to get rid of an old, broken appliance or something else too large to fit into your trash bin? There are a few chances to do so coming up.

The City of Fayetteville’s Solid Waste and Recycling Division today announced the ward cleanup schedule for the disposal and recycling of bulky waste items.

At the Ward 1 cleanup on April 14, the city will also offer a free shredding service for the destruction and recycling of documents. The shredding service will only be offered at the Ward 1 cleanup.

Any resident of Fayetteville can bring bulky items to any of the clean ups, but the city does ask that you bring a recent copy of the water bill to verify residency.
