Waste Management 'Residential Dump Days' This Weekend
In an effort to assist residents with household clean-ups and curb illegal dumping, Waste Management announced today the fourth quarterly "Residential Dump Days" to be held in 2012 at the Waste Management Transfer Stations in Reno. The dates for this event are Saturday, October 6 and Sunday, October 7. Residential Dump Days are held solely at the Transfer Stations in Reno – the Lockwood Landfill is closed on weekends.
"Waste Management is committed to helping the communities we serve with all of their environmental service needs," said Sarah Sciarani, Waste Management Public Affairs Representative. "Providing these Residential Dump Days helps keep thousands of yards of waste and bulky items from being dumped illegally in our open space. And enhancing the program to include a reduced rate for all Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is our way of helping our customers in these tough economic times."
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 percent off the regular gate rate (rates outlined below).
The reduced dump rates accompanied by free dumping for specific items during Residential Dump Days is the result of a partnership between Waste Management and Washoe County government. This program helps residents clean up their homes and our communities, which in turn, decreases the amount of illegal dumping in our area. Both Waste Management and Washoe County recognize the role of citizens in making this effort successful by ensuring citizens understand what is eligible for free dumping versus reduced dump rates during this two-day event.
