2015 Fall Bulky Waste Clean-up

CONTACT: Brian Pugh
Waste Reduction Coordinator
Recycling and Trash Collection


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The City of Fayetteville is holding four (4) ward clean-ups for the disposal/recycling of large bulky items during the fall. All clean-ups are open to Fayetteville residents, will occur on a Saturday, and will begin at 7:00 a.m. and end at 2:00 p.m.

These bulky waste clean-ups are specifically for large bulky items that cannot fit into a resident’s normal trash cart. The clean-ups are not intended for bags of normal household garbage, as that is handled through normal weekly curbside collection, and are not accepted at bulky waste clean-ups. Other items that are not accepted at the clean-ups 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 your water bill to verify your residency.
