Davis residents can load up their old refrigerators and freezers, other large appliances, mattresses, furniture, electronics, scrap wood and scrap metal for free disposal this weekend at Davis Waste Removal.

The annual city-sponsored bulky waste drop-off program is offered Thursday through Saturday at DWR, 2727 Second St. It is open to all DWR residential customers in Davis, El Macero, Willowbank, North Davis Meadows and the Binning tract.

Hours are 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

“(This) event is one of the most popular programs we provide,” said John Geisler of DWR. “Residents are very appreciative of the opportunity to get rid of large items without having to go to the landfill.

“Because the material is sorted here, we are able to achieve a 75 percent recycle rate, which wouldn’t be possible if it were taken to the landfill,” he added.

To help DWR recycle, residents are asked to separate their items by type, i.e., scrap metal, wood and cardboard, etc., from other items.

As in past years, DWR brings good and salvageable material to a salvage area for reuse. These items are available for individuals to take at no charge.

Electronics, such as TVs and computers, are not allowed in the salvage area. All electronics brought this week will be recycled instead.

Residents who cannot transport their bulky items to the drop-off site may wish to car-pool with neighbors or friends who have a vehicle that will transport the items. Customers who subscribe to handicapped trash service can call DWR at (530) 756-4646 for a special pickup appointment.

As always, DWR offers pickup service for a fee to residents who wish to dispose of a bulky item.

Reusable items can be donated to a local thrift store or charity, or can be given away by advertising in the “free” section of The Davis Enterprise classifieds.

Items not accepted at the bulky waste event include soil, dirt, concrete, asphalt, tires, hazardous waste and regular household garbage. Hazardous waste can be taken to Yolo County Central Landfill on County Road 28H for free every Friday and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The other items may be disposed of every day at the landfill. Standard fees will apply.
