Town of Friday Harbor residential refuse customers can dispose of items that are too large or too heavy for their refuse cans the week of May 15-19, during a one-time-only curbside pickup. On the second day of the pickup, two loads were collected.
“The Town saw an opportunity to encourage neighborhood cleanups and to assist our customers with their spring cleaning efforts,” said Town Administrator Duncan Wilson. He says this one-time service is being offered free of charge to its non-commercial customers.
Specific rules apply regarding the volume and type of items that will be accepted. Customers should review the information included with their monthly billing statement. They may also find information on items that aren't included in the Spring Cleanup on the Town website or call Town Hall at 360.378-2810.
The Town reserves the right to deny pickup of items. These unaccepted items must be removed by the customer within two days of their refuse pickup day. Unremoved items and anything left in front of empty homes will be investigated by Code Enforcement as illegal dumping. This service is solely to assist existing Town refuse customers and no items may be brought to or left in Town.
Regular refuse and recycling will be picked up separately that week as usual. Customers are to set these cans apart from their large refuse pickup pile.
