City of Auburn Grants Trash Amnesty May 20-24

Spring cleaning doesn't get much easier than during Trash Amnesty Week, set aside each spring by the City of Auburn. During the week of May 20-24, 2013, the fees normally assessed to Auburn residents for the collection of oversized yard debris and other bulky waste will be waived. Citizens are asked to pay close attention to the following guidelines when placing items out for collection:

  • Debris should be placed 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. All items should be properly contained or bundled so they do not fall into the street or down storm drains.
  • The City will accept yard waste, appliances, and bulky items for collection. No household garbage, hazardous waste, or other unacceptable waste should be placed out for collection with debris.
  • Debris should not be placed in the roadway, on or around storm drains, near utility lines, on utility boxes, or on vacant lots.
  • Limbs and other debris should be no longer than 5 feet in length.
  • To facilitate wood debris and metal recycling efforts, please separate all wood debris, including limbs and grass clippings from metal items.

Due to the large volume of debris expected during Trash Amnesty Week, citizens may experience a delay in their collection schedule. Every reasonable effort will be made to maintain the established collection schedule.

For more information, please contact the City of Auburn Environmental Services Department at 501-3080.
