The City of Tacoma and various neighborhoods have partnered to schedule a number of spring cleanups for the month of April. Homeowners and renters in single-family and duplex residences in these areas are encouraged to unload unwanted items for free.
• April 7: Dometop Neighbors, Tacoma Dome (2727 East D St.)
• April 28: Edison, Edison Elementary (5830 S. Pine St.)
During these cleanups, volunteers and staff from the City will accept items for disposal. All that is required to dump in eligible neighborhoods is a proof of residence such as a driver’s license or current utility bill.
Items that can’t be dumped include: material from a business; cars, motorcycles, campers or boat parts; truck canopies, trailers, boats or recreational vehicles; daily household garbage; hazardous waste; riding mowers; and animal carcasses.
The City will host 18 community cleanups in 2012. For more information on scheduled cleanups and/or neighborhoods boundaries, contact Allyson Griffith with Community Based Services at (253) 591-5119.
