Town of Friday Harbor Collects Almost 19 Tons of Garbage during Spring Cleanup
From the Town of Friday Harbor
The Town of Friday Harbor helped its customers jump-start their spring cleaning with free pickup of oversized refuse the week of April 26-30.
This is the fifth year the town has offered the Spring Cleanup service to its residential refuse customers.
Refuse employees Dave Smith and Mark Wagner picked up a total of 18.53 tons, or 37,060 pounds, of oversized junk too large to fit in standard garbage cans. Last year, the town picked up just over 20 tons.
“Once again, our customers did a fantastic job of selecting acceptable items and neatly stacking them for pickup,” said Town of Friday Harbor Administrator Duncan Wilson.
He also recognized the excellent job the public works employees did handling the significant increase in refuse picked up this year.
“Town staff is grateful to the mayor and town council for approving this additional free service,” said Wilson.
The town hopes to see this town beautification service continue in future years.
