Fall Clean Up Events
Every year, the City of Puyallup offers a curbside Fall Clean Up program to help utility customers get rid of extra garbage, yard waste, and recycle one household appliance. This is an excellent opportunity to dispose fallen leaves and branches that may otherwise clog storm drains on your street and cause flooding when it rains
. This year Fall Clean Up runs from Monday, November 17 through Saturday, November 22. See below for information on how you can participate in this curbside clean up effort:
Leave up to three extra bags of garbage for curbside pickup on your regular garbage day. The garbage must be in covered cans or garbage bags and should not weigh more than 40 pounds. Tires will not be accepted. Please make sure the garbage containers are at the curb before 7 a.m.
Leave three extra containers of yard waste at the curb on your regularly scheduled yard waste service day. Please use garbage cans or bio-degradable lawn waste bags. Containers should not exceed 40 pounds. Make sure your containers are at the curb no later than 7 a.m.
D.M. Disposal will pick up one major appliance per utility customer at no extra cost. Please secure the appliance doors and leave it at the curb no later than 7 a.m. on Monday, November 17. DM Disposal will pick up appliances on their regular runs during the week. The following appliances are eligible for curbside pickup: Refrigerator, Freezer, Range, Dishwasher, Trash Compactor, Washing Machine, Clothes Dryer, Furnace, Hot Water Tank.
