Waste Management Announces "Residential Dump Days"

Posted: Updated:

Event #1: Residential Dump Days, April 2-3. In an effort to assist residents with household clean-ups and curb illegal dumping, Waste Management will be offering reduced residential rates for Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) at both Transfer Stations in Reno the first weekend in April. In addition, 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). Any material that falls outside of these parameters will be accepted at more than 50% off the regular gate rate (rates outlined below).

In addition to the quarterly Residential Dump Days, Waste Management is offering its annual free dump weekends at the Lockwood Landfill throughout April in recognition of Earth Day.
