Spring Cleanup Events


Spring is in the air! It’s the season of new beginnings; the perfect time to refresh and clean up our homes, yards, and parks. Each spring, Puyallup Utility customers have the opportunity to reduce clutter and dispose of unwanted household materials at no extra cost. Residents can get rid of extra garbage, yard waste, sensitive documents, and one major appliance during our spring clean up events.

Spring Cleanup Curbside Service
Monday, April 21 – Friday, April 25

  • Garbage: Three extra bags of garbage on your regular garbage pick up day.
  • Yard Waste: Three extra containers of yard waste on your regular pick up day.
  • Appliances: You may leave one major appliance on your curbside for pick up, no later than 7 a.m. on Monday, April 21st.

Shredding & E-Waste Recycling Day
Saturday, April 26
The City will accept sensitive papers for shredding and electronics for recycling at the Cornforth Campbell Parking Lot, between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Parks help build stronger communities and bring enjoyment to people of all ages. Join us at the Parks Appreciation Day event for a spring cleaning of our local parks. To participate, visit the event page.

GIS INTERNSHIP
Interested in gaining practical experience using GIS? The City of Puyallup is recruiting for a non-paid, three month GIS Internship with a possible three month extension. View position description here for duties, responsibilities, skills needed, and application procedures. You can apply for the position before 5 p.m. on April 30 using this City of Puyallup Volunteer Application.

ARBOR DAY PLANTING EVENT
Take part in Puyallup's first annual Arbor Day Event! Volunteers can participate in a tree replanting along West Steward Avenue in celebration of Arbor Day on April 19th. The new trees will replace 44 street trees that were removed between 5th Street and 12th Street NW after they grew into overhead utility lines and caused sidewalk damage. The new trees have been carefully selected to fit the space, and they will bring beauty to our city streets without causing harm to power lines or sidewalks. Learn more!

UTILITY RATE CHANGE
In an effort to keep pace with rising costs of infrastructure repair and replacement, a utility rate adjustment will take effect on March 1st. The rate change will result in an increase of $6.43 for the average residential customer, per billing cycle starting in May 2014. Visit the Utility Billing page for 2014 utility rates and senior citizens/disability discount rates.

WSDOT TREE REMOVAL
As part of the Puyallup River Bridge Replacement Project, WSDOT is scheduled to start construction of the new bridge in Spring 2014. In preparation of this phase, WSDOT will remove some trees from the intersection of North Meridian and NW corner of Levee. For more information on the project, visit the WSDOT website.
