Port Orchard spring cleanup is canceled

Limited staffing will delay semiannual pickup until this fall

PORT ORCHARD — That pile of refuse and riff-raff you’ve set aside for this spring’s City of Port Orchard semi-annual cleanup will have to wait another six months until this fall’s free haul.

The city public works department announced Tuesday that it has canceled the spring cleanup because its staff continues to work in a limited capacity due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Officials said that after employees return in full, a date will be identified for the fall cleanup.

“We understand the Spring Clean-Up is a great opportunity for our residents to have their household refuse and items disposed of, but with City staff working in a limited capacity, we will not be able to hold this event,” officials stated in a news release.

“We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.”

The doors to City Hall continue to be closed to the public, but officials are serving the public via telephone and email on weekdays. Residents with questions about the spring cleanup can call public works at 360-876-4991.
