Normally, city residents needing to dispose of bulky trash items must request a special pickup.
However, as a courtesy to residents, the City of Elkins will collect bulky items at no cost during Spring Cleanup, an annual event that takes place each April and lasts for two weeks. The dates for this event fluctuate, so keep an eye out for announcements on this site’s home page, the city’s Facebook page, and in the Inter-Mountain newspaper.
Each ward will be assigned two days during the two-week Spring Cleanup period. To take advantage of this service, please have all items at the curb no later than 5:30 a.m. on the first assigned day for your ward. Crews will not return to the part of the ward they visited on the first day, so placing your items out on the second day may result in your items being left behind.
Crews will only accept one level pickup truck load from each residence. The following items will not be picked up: appliances, tires, free flowing liquids, batteries and yard waste. (For information about disposing of yard waste, please click here.) Please make all items as easy to collect as possible, such as by bagging or boxing smaller items. Crews will not collect loose trash.
