For years Public Works hosted three Regional Community Cleanups each spring to give County residents the opportunity to dispose of household waste, green waste and other materials free of charge at designated collection areas. These annual Cleanups, which were held at the City of Flagstaff Cinder Lake Landfill, Willard Springs Transfer Station and the City of Williams Transfer Station were very popular. As one-day events, however, many residents were unable to attend due to holidays, busy springtime schedules and other commitments.
How the Voucher Program Works...
Starting this year, the County will give full and part-time residents a wider timeframe to clean up their properties for fire season and dispose of materials for free by moving to a Community Cleanup Voucher Program. Under this self-serve program, each County property that received a Regional Community Cleanup event flyer in years past will now receive two “Cleanup Vouchers” along with a flyer that lists their valid time frame as well as accepted and prohibited waste. Each voucher is good to deposit one (1) pickup truck- or standard trailer-load of solid waste free of charge at its designated transfer station or landfill. Best of all, these vouchers can be used anytime during regular business hours over a designated three-week period between May and June.
2017 Community Cleanup Voucher Schedule
Following is the schedule for the 2017 Community Cleanup Voucher Program. Vouchers will be mailed approximately one month before their start date:
City of Williams Transfer Station: May 12th – June 2nd, 2017
City of Flagstaff Landfill & Willard Springs Transfer Station:
May 26th – June 16th 2017
Please also note that recipients of Willard Springs or City of Flagstaff Landfill vouchers can use them at either the Transfer Station or the Landfill.
This new Community Cleanup Voucher Program is community driven. In fact, 80 percent of surveyed Cleanup event attendees indicated that they would prefer vouchers over one-day events to allow them more options to dispose of spring cleaning waste and also to prepare for wildfire season by getting rid of leaves and pine needle accumulations from their properties.
