The City of Fayetteville is holding four (4) Ward clean-ups for the disposal/recycling of large bulky items during the spring. 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. These 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 these bulky waste clean-ups. Other things that are also 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.
