Waste Management 'Residential Dump Days' This Weekend

Posted: Updated:

In an effort to assist residents with household cleanups and curb illegal dumping, Waste Management announced the next "Residential Dump Days," scheduled for Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7. Residential Dump Days are held only at the Waste Management transfer stations in Reno. In addition, Waste Management will be holding the "Lockwood Annual Spring Free Dump Event" on nine specific days throughout the months of April and May.

"Providing Residential Dump Days helps keep thousands of yards of waste and bulky items from being dumped illegally in our open space," said Sarah Polito, Waste Management of Nevada spokesperson. "We are committed to helping the communities that we serve with all of 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).

"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," 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 government 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 citizens understand what is eligible for free dumping versus reduced dump rates during this two-day event.
