Upcoming Bulky Waste Clean Up Schedule and Locations


The City of Fayetteville is holding four (4) Ward clean-ups for the disposal/recycling of large bulky items during the spring.  All clean ups are open to Fayetteville residents, will occur on a Saturday, and will begin at 7:00 a.m. and end at 2:00 p.m.

These bulky waste clean-ups are specifically for large bulky items that cannot fit into a resident’s normal trash cart.  These clean-ups are not intended for bags of normal household garbage, as that is handled through normal weekly curbside collection, and are not accepted at these bulky waste clean-ups.  Other things that are also not accepted at the clean-ups are outlined with this information.  If you are a resident of Fayetteville, you can bring bulky items to any of the clean-ups.  Please bring a recent copy of your water bill to verify your residency.
