PORT ORCHARD — The City of Port Orchard and Waste Management are once again teaming up to sponsor a spring clean-up week within city limits.
During the week of May 21-25, city residents will have an opportunity to get rid of extra yard waste, recycled items, household items and assorted waste. While most items will be picked up without charge, some require payment in advance prior to pick-up.
Items are to be placed at the street curb, next to garbage containers, on the regularly scheduled pick-up day. The total volume of the collection must fit into a space 4 feet by 4 feet wide and 4 feet high. Any amount over that volume will not be picked up, according to the city.
Program sponsors said that loose debris will not be picked up.
Items picked up for a fee include air conditioners, upholstered chairs and couches, washers and dryers, refrigerators, stoves, mattresses and box springs and sinks. An expanded list can be accessed from the city’s website: www.cityofportorchard.us/spring-clean-up/.
