Clean Up Week, the annual citywide event to clear properties of unwanted items, will take place Monday, Sept. 14, through Friday, Sept. 18. All items should be placed curbside at 4 p.m. the day prior to garbage collection. Household items should be bagged and tied due to COVID-19 protocols. Items that are too large to fit in standard bags will still be accepted curbside.
During Clean Up Week, there will be no branch collection, as the truck is utilized to haul large, curbside items. Construction debris will be permitted curbside during Clean Up Week only.
No matter the time of year, there are a few items that can never be disposed of curbside. For example, household hazardous wastes such as paints, oils and varnishes must be brought to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility at 606 43 1/2 St N, Fargo. Grass clippings, compost materials and other organic materials must be brought to one of the three yard waste disposal sites in West Fargo.
The Transfer Station, located at 1620 Main Ave. W., is open Monday through Saturday throughout the year to accept West Fargo residents’ extra garbage, recycling, yard waste, branches and large items free of charge. After Sept. 18, residents can continue to dispose of appliances there for a $10 fee.
