City hosts free neighborhood clean-ups


The City of Reno this month hosts a series of neighborhood cleanup days with free access to dumpsters and an opportunity to dispose of hazardous and e-waste. The first is coming up this Saturday, Oct. 8.

The city will have dumpster bins at four locations each on a separate date in Wards 1, 2, 3 and 5. 

At events where dumpster bins are present, accepted items include large trash and debris, grass clippings, and tree and hedge trimmings. Bicycles will also be accepted, but will be donated instead of junked. 

The Ward 2 clean-up date will not have trash dumpsters. Instead, it will be a hazardous and e-waste disposal event. That includes electronics, paint, oil or other similar items. No other trash or yard debris will be accepted. 

The city is also inviting people to volunteer to assist at the events. Volunteer links for each date are included in the details below.
