ORIGINAL STORY

If you had anything you were ready to get rid of during Fargo, Moorhead, or West Fargo's Cleanup Week, you'll have to hold onto it a little longer. Every year it happens the first week in May, but it's been re-scheduled for September 23-27 for Fargo because of the spring flood.

Moorhead pushed their cleanup week back to June 3-7. West Fargo is also postponing, but has not set a make-up date. Dilworth will hold Clean-Up Week the first week of May.

City of Fargo release:

 Due to the historically late spring flood, the Fargo City Commission has approved postponing cleanup week to September 23 – 27, 2013.

 The annual electronics recycling event has been postponed to Saturday, September 21.

Cleanup week is traditionally held during the first week of May, however, the Red River is anticipated to crest in early May this year.

Levee removal and flood cleanup will likely extend through May and into early summer.
