Annual Spring Clean- Up

04/15/2023 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Spring is the time to start gathering unwanted items that are not typically collected with weekly residential service.

The Annual Spring Clean Up returns this April! Spring Clean and Beautify Your Home and bring your waste to Spring Clean Up on South 11th Street for quick free disposal of the items listed below.

Please note: Due to funding sources, free disposal is limited to residents of the City of Ridgefield. We will be mailing admission flyers to those eligible. Not all Ridgefield addresses are within the city limits.

We are thankful for our partnership with Clark County and Green Neighbors who make this event possible.
