The Regional Board of Mayors have set spring and fall cleanup dates, when residents can take their garden and lawn waste to the transfer station for free dumping.
The spring date for Electric City, Grand Coulee, Coulee Dam and Elmer City and other residents within the garbage pickup area is April 5-12, which covers two Saturdays.
In addition, Electric City and Grand Coulee will provide curbside pickup April 14-18 for those unable to haul to the transfer station.
The curbside pickup was scheduled later than the spring cleanup week so the transfer station wouldn’t be inundated with traffic the same week.
The fall date, just one week this year, will be Nov. 15-22. That week, all residents who want to take advantage of the free dump must haul their garden and lawn waste to the transfer station.
