WEST FARGO — Cleanup Week, the annual citywide event to clear properties of unwanted items, will take place Monday, May 2, through Friday, May 6.

All items should be placed curbside at 4 p.m. the day before garbage collection. Household items should be bagged and tied. Items that are too large to fit in standard bags will still be accepted curbside.

During Cleanup Week, there will be no branch collection, as the truck will be used to haul large, curbside items. Branch collection will begin Monday, May 9. Renovation debris and building material will be permitted curbside during Cleanup Week only.

There are a few items that can never be disposed of curbside. 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 to accept West Fargo residents’ extra garbage, recycling, yard waste, branches and large items free of charge. After Monday, May 6, residents can continue to dispose of appliances at the Transfer Station for a $10 fee.
