Spring Sanitation Reminders


Yard waste sites now open

Yard Waste Collection

Yard waste collection bins are now open. All residents are required to dispose of yard waste, including organic, biodegradable material from lawn trimming or raking, as well as leaves, vines and garden waste at these sites. 

The current yard waste drop-off locations are: 

  • Department of Sanitation (117 Eighth St. W) 
  • West Fargo Legion Field (501 13th Ave. W) 
  • Eagle Run Water Tower (40th Ave. S and Sheyenne St.)
  • 17th Street E. (between Second Ave. E. and Starr Ave.)

These collection sites include a large dumpster for the grass, leaves or other yard waste. Do not throw your plastic bags in with yard waste as they will contaminate the compost.

Recycle Often. Recycle Right.

Recycle Often. Recycle Right.

It can be tricky to get everyone on the same page with recycling at home – and the result is that up to 25% of items in your home recycling bins actually belong in the trash. Unfortunately, these small mix-ups add up to enormous consequences for the long-term viability of recycling. The good news? You can help solve this problem by educating your family on how to recycle often and recycle right.
