It's time for Spring cleaning!

Jen Pickett, Recycling Director at the City of Fargo, joined the WOYM program to answer all of our questions about the do's and don'ts of Cleanup Week.


Cleanup Week rules for all cities

  • Separate items of the same type into distinct piles (tires, appliances, furniture, brush, household garbage, etc.). Separate trucks collect the items.
  • Place garbage in disposable containers, except for oversized items.
  • Do not set items out more than one day early.
  • Crews will not return to pick up garbage set out too late.
  • Remove refrigerator and freezer doors. Do not place food or any other waste inside appliances.
  • Items must be from residences; no commercial waste will be accepted. Keep household garbage at least four feet away from other Cleanup Week items.
