Community Cleanup Program

Call2Haul Curbside

The Community Cleanup program has been discontinued for 2021.


The Community Cleanup program which previously offered neighborhood-specific cleanup events has been cancelled. Residential customers can still take advantage of curbside collection of unwanted or unusable items through the Call-2-Haul program. 

Call-2-Haul is a service for residential customers to use up to twice per year at no additional cost. Customers can clean out unwanted or unusable items from their homes that may be difficult to get to the Tacoma Recovery and Transfer Center or are not accepted for regular curbside collection. Items can be placed on the curbside for scheduled, no-contact pickup by Solid Waste crews. Customers can also self-haul items to the Tacoma Recovery and Transfer Center as part of Call-2-Haul at no additional cost, but must schedule a self-haul appointment in advance.
