The Auburn City Council has
long designated one week a year as Trash Amnesty Week to allow Auburn residents
to take care of spring yardwork without paying extra fees. This year, at the
request of our Auburn Environmental Services staff, the City Council approved
expanding the timeframe of Trash Amnesty Week to maximize its utility for
Auburn’s 2017 Trash Amnesty program will run from March 20 through April 28, 2017, giving Auburn residents
six full weeks to clean and beautify their yards for the season. During this
time, the City will waive fees normally charged for the collection of oversized
yard debris and other bulky yard waste.
Please follow these
guidelines when taking advantage of Trash Amnesty Month:
Place debris at the
curb no later than 6:00 a.m. on your regularly scheduled collection day.
Please avoid placing items on or near mailboxes, utility boxes or poles, or other fixed objects that would inhibit safe collection of the trash.
All items should be properly contained or bundled so they do not
fall into the street or down storm drains.
They City will accept
yard waste, appliances, and bulky items for collection. Please do not include
materials such as household garbage or hazardous waste.
Limbs and other
debris should be no longer than 5 feet in length.
recycling efforts, please separate all wood debris, including limbs and grass
clippings, from metal items.
Due to the large volume of
pickup expected during Trash Amnesty Month, residents may experience a delay in
their normal collection schedule.
