Cooler weather is returning to Puyallup and with it comes the annual Fall Clean-up! Whether it is raking leaves, getting rid of that faulty dishwasher, or shredding all those extra papers piled in a desk drawer, fall is the perfect time to tidy up.
To assist you in this process, the City of Puyallup partners with Murrey's Disposal to offer an additional opportunity to recycle and dispose of household items properly. On specified days in November, Puyallup utility customers can leave up to three extra bags of yard waste and garbage curbside for pick-up. This free service is provided as a courtesy to utility customers and as an incentive to spruce up your property! Fall Clean-up starts on November 1, 2021.
