The city of Fayetteville will be holding four Ward clean-ups for the disposal or recycling of large bulky items during the spring, according to a news release put out today.

All the clean ups are open to Fayetteville residents, and they will occur on a Saturday beginning at 7 am and ending at 2 pm.

“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,” the news release stated.
