Bulky Waste Clean-Ups

The Recycling and Trash Collection Division sponsors eight bulky waste clean-ups (four in the Spring and four in the Fall) for the disposal and/or recycling of large bulky items. These clean-ups are for Fayetteville residents only; a recent copy of a water bill is required to verify residency.

All clean-ups will occur on a Saturday and will begin at 7 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. Dates and locations are coordinated with the City Council members and posted approximately one month before the clean-ups begin.
