WEST FARGO — Pickers across the metro should have clear weather as they salvage through the items residents leave alongside their curbs for the annual Clean Up Week, happening now through Friday.

Cleanup week is the annual citywide event to clear properties of unwanted items. It began Tuesday, May 3 and will run through Friday, May 7.

Residents are asked to place all items 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 Clean Up Week, there will be no branch collection, as the truck is used to haul large, curbside items.

Monday, May 2, Public Works Director Matt Andvik said the city no longer picks up building or construction materials during regular collection. But, those items will be picked up during clean up week.

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, even during cleanup week. 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 May 7, residents can continue to dispose of appliances there for a $10 fee.
