|Curbside cleanup and appliance dropoff week Oct. 19-24
Were you too busy for spring cleaning this year? Well, now you’ve got another chance to clean house.
October 19-23 is Curbside Cleanup Week in Rohnert Park and Saturday Oct. 24 is E-Waste and Appliance Dropoff Day. That’s the word from Rohnert Park Disposal, the city’s garbage collecting firm.
Residential customers only may place extra garbage in boxes or bags at the curb on their regular collection days. Multi-family complexes must call ahead of time to set up service for their complex.
“Each participant is allowed a maximum of 14 bags, boxes or cans,” said a spokeswoman at RP Disposal, “or one bulky item and seven bags, boxes or cans. Bulky items must weigh less than 60 pounds and be less than five feet long.”
They cannot accept appliances, electronics, scrap metal, tires or dirt. Saturday, Oct. 24 is the day for electronic rejects and appliances.
The dropoff site is the parking lot of the former Yardbirds Home Appliance store at 5300 Commerce Blvd. Accepted will be computers (including laptops), TV consoles, stereo equipment, telephones and cell phones digital cameras and camcorders, iPods and Blackberries, washers, dryers and water heaters.
Not accepted are household debris, fluorescent bulbs, car batteries, paint and paint thinners, pesticides and herbicides, motor oil, tires, propane tanks and hazardous waste.
