Spring Cleaning Tips
Go green with these Spring cleaning tips.
Spring is the perfect time of year to clear out clutter. Before you toss anything, please think about the environment and check to see if the items you are cleaning out of your home need special disposal. Here are some disposal options that should make your spring cleaning easy:
Say Good-bye to Bulky Items The Bulky Item Pick- up Program can help you properly dispose of worn- out furniture or other large items that are too big for your trash barrel. Rancho Cucamonga residents that have residential barrel service with Burrtec Waste Industries are eligible for four free bulky item pick- ups per calendar year. Bulky item pick-ups must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance of your service day. Please do not place items at the curb until the morning of your scheduled pick up day. To schedule a pickup or for more information, call Burrtec Waste Industries at (909) 987-3717.
Green Your Yard Excess seasonal green waste can be bundled and placed beside your green waste barrel for pick-up. Tie prunings into bundles no larger than 18 inches in diameter and 4 feet in length and they will be hauled away at no additional charge. Residents may place excess seasonal green waste out for pick up at no additional charge up to two times per year. If you consistently produce excess green waste, call Burrtec Waste Industries at (909) 987-3717 to request an additional barrel for a nominal monthly fee.
Safe Disposal of Household Hazardous Waste Safely dispose of unused household cleaners, batteries, paint, used motor oil and electronics at the City’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility located at 8794 Lion Street between Vineyard and Hellman Avenue off of 9th Street. The collection facility is open Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Please note that the facility will be closed on Saturday, May 25th. The service is free, but proof of residency in San Bernardino County is required. Business waste is not accepted. Visit the City’s website CityofRC.us or call the Environmental Programs Info Line at (909) 919-2635 for a complete list of acceptable items, transportation guidelines and holiday closure info.
