Fargo and Moorhead Move Cleanup Week Again

Posted: Updated:

 It's another sign that the pressure valve is being released on this year's flood fight. After pushing Cleanup Week back because of flood fears, both Moorhead and Fargo have moved the event back to May.

 During Cleanup Week, residents can get rid of anything on the berm for free. Moorhead's cleanup week was originally re-scheduled for June 3rd-7th, and Fargo's for September 23rd-27th. But tonight, both cities decided to hold them the first full week in May (May 6th-10th).




The Cities of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks have moved the curbside collection for spring clean-up week back to the week of May 13–17. The delay is due to the late spring and current flooding in the area.

The Grand Forks Electronic Recycling Event is still scheduled for May 4 at the GF Public Works Facility, 724 N. 47th St., Grand Forks, ND from 10 a.m.–1:00 p.m.

The East Grand Forks Household Hazardous Waste & Electronics Drop-Off Event is still scheduled for May 11th at the EGF Public Works Building, 1001 2nd St. NE, E. Grand Forks, MN from 9 a.m.–3 p.m.

The curbside collection for both communities is now scheduled for May 13-17. Residents are asked to place their items (household quantity) where you normally place your garbage by 7 a.m. of your normal collection day.

The landfill will also have extended hours during Spring Clean-Up week. The extended hours are, Saturday, May 11 to Saturday, May 18 from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. except for Sunday, May 12. Grand Forks residents can bring household quantities there for free during those hours. Simply show proof of residence, like a utility bill.

Curbside collection moved to May 13-17.




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.
