Marin Sanitary Service is providing two new services this year to its ratepayers in Fairfax. The free hazardous waste pick-up has been replaced by a Curbside Cleanup day and two free scheduled Bulky Item Collections.
Curbside Cleanup: On curbside cleanup days, you can put out up to fourteen extra 32-gallon bags or cans (2 cubic yards) of garbage, recycling, and/or yard/food waste. Bulky items like mattresses, appliances, and furniture will NOT be collected during curbside clean-ups. The next curbside cleanup will be on your regularly scheduled collection day between September 26-30. If you are a Marin Sanitary Service customer, and do not live in Fairfax, your curbside cleanup may be scheduled for a different week. See this link for more details. (Note: Residents in the unincorporated areas of Fairfax are not serviced by Marin Sanitary Service and will not receive this service.)
Bulky Item Collections: Residential customers may receive two free scheduled bulky item collections per year of up to two items each time. Any item over 60 pounds or 6 feet will be subject to an additional fee to cover equipment and labor. Call Marin Sanitary Service customer service department at 415-456-2601 to get a quote or schedule your collection. A 24-hour notice is required for special pick-up requests. The quote given over the phone may change after the driver assesses the load.
