The cities of Monroe and Sultan are preparing for their annual spring cleanup events, open to residents of the cities.
Both Monroe and Sultan have sent out flyers detailing the events. Make sure to have your signed flyer with you; it is the proof of residence that allows you to utilize the dumping services.
Sultan’s Spring Community Cleanup Event is this Saturday, April 26, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Sultan High School, 13715 310th Ave. S.E. in Sultan.
Accepted items include unwanted furniture, rugs, and up to four tires with rims removed. They will also be accepting computers and printers for recycling, complete with free data wiping services by the Sultan High Technology Club (donations are accepted for the data wiping services).
Appliances will be accepted for recycling at no charge, with the exception of refrigerators and freezers, which cost $30 (cash or check only; fee must be paid at Sultan City Hall prior to the event).
Most green waste, hazardous household waste and metal will also be accepted.
There will be free shredding services from 8 to 11 a.m. or when the truck is full.
Senior and disabled citizens can get assistance with disposal and transportation by calling City Hall at (360) 793-2231 by Friday, April 25. This service is provided by the Sultan Sportsmen’s Club.
A number of items such as construction waste and food waste will not be accepted. For a comprehensive list of items that can be taken to the event, as well as unacceptable items or other information, go to www.ci.sultan.wa.us or call (360) 793-2231.
