Washoe County Announcement
RE-POSTED ON BEHALF OF WASTE MANAGEMENT NEVADA
Reno, Nevada. July 1, 2015. In an effort to assist residents with household cleanups and curb illegal dumping, Waste Management of Nevada announced the next "Residential Dump Days," scheduled for Saturday, July 11 and Sunday, July 12. Residential Dump Days are held only at the Waste Management transfer stations in Reno.
"Residential Dump Days help keep thousands of yards of waste and bulky items from being dumped illegally in our open space," said Sarah Polito, Waste Management of Nevada’s spokesperson. "We are committed to helping the communities that we serve with their environmental service needs."
Identified materials commonly associated with illegal dumping will be accepted at no charge. These specific items include eligible household appliances (freon-free refrigerators, hot water heaters, stoves, dishwashers and washers/dryers) and eligible bulky waste (sofas, chairs, mattresses and box springs).
"This event provides our customers with the opportunity to dispose of their bulky waste and other Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) at a discounted rate," said Polito.
Any material that falls outside of these parameters will be accepted at more than 50 percent off the regular gate rate (rates outlined below).
The reduced dump rates accompanied by free dumping for specific items during Residential Dump Days are the result of a partnership between Washoe County and Waste Management. This program helps residents clean up their homes and our communities, which in turn, decreases the amount of illegal dumping in our area. Both Washoe County and Waste Management recognize the role of citizens in making this effort successful by ensuring they understand what is eligible for free dumping versus reduced dump rates during this two-day event.
