City sets May 11 for bulky waste drop-off
In partnership with Metro and Republic Services, the City of Wilsonville is holding a Bulky Waste Day from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, May 11, at Republic Services, 10295 S.W. Ridder Road in Wilsonville.
This biannual opportunity is available only to Wilsonville residents; participants must provide proof of residence.
There is no charge to dispose of waste, though the City encourages participants to donate personal hygiene items — including shampoo, toothpaste, paper towels, dish soap, laundry soap, deodorant — to help Wilsonville Community Sharing's Food Bank provide assistance to local families in need.
Bulky Waste Day gives residents the opportunity to drop off large, bulky items that do not fit into standard-size garbage cans. Accepted items include dishwashers, televisions, refrigerators, computers, monitors, stoves, dryers, water heaters, couches, mattresses, scrap metal, tables and chairs, and clean, untreated wood.
The program does not accept construction debris of any type, propane bottles or canisters, paint, batteries, solvents, thinners, household garbage or car tires.
