In an effort to help residents with household clean-ups and curb illegal dumping, Waste Management will be offering reduced residential rates for municipal solid waste (MSW) at both transfer stations in Reno the first full weekend in July. In addition, identified materials commonly associated with illegal dumping will be accepted at no charge.
These specific items include eligible household appliances (Freon-free refrigerators, hot water heaters, stoves, dishwashers and washers/dryers) and eligible bulky waste (sofas, chairs, mattresses and box springs). Any material that falls outside of these parameters will be accepted at more than 50 percent off the regular gate rate.
• Standard pick-up truck with MSW: $10 flat fee
• Small pick-up truck with MSW: $6.50 flat fee
Residential Dump Days is the result of a partnership between Waste Management and Washoe County government to develop a program that helps residents clean up their homes and decrease the amount of illegal dumping in our area.
Waste Management transfer stations are located at 1390 E. Commercial Row and 13890 Mt. Anderson Road. They are open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The Lockwood Landfill is closed on weekends and will not be part of the Residential Dump Days event.
