Starting June 1, Waste Management crews in Northern Nevada will resume collection of stickered excess waste placed outside of the cart under normal program restrictions.
Customers in the City of Sparks and in Unincorporated Washoe County may leave six additional excess waste bags curbside without a sticker on their collection day throughout the month of June. Typically, the Spring excess waste program in these jurisdictions occurs in May, but was delayed due to precautions related to COVID-19.
The decision to resume excess waste collection has been made after careful consideration of many factors including the phased reopening of our communities. Waste Management has worked diligently to secure personal protective equipment for each of its front-line employees and has instituted procedures to protect employees as best it can. Waste Management also recognizes the pandemic is not over and will continue to closely monitor case counts and orders from federal, state and local governments.
Lockwood Regional Landfill (2700 East Mustang Road, Sparks) remains open to the public Monday-Saturday 8 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. Residential customers may dispose of up to three cubic yards of materials four times per year at no additional charge as part of their curbside program.
Waste Management offices remain closed to the public, but payment drop boxes are available at our Reno office on Vasser Street and at our Carson City office on Sheep 5560 Drive.
