NEW LOCATION! The dumpster will be delivered near the corner of Hollen and Yorkshire.
The dumpster is typically delivered during the morning, but the city has the right to deliver it as late at 1 p.m. Neither the LWCA, nor the volunteers who monitor the dumpster, have control over the delivery time. We encourage Lake Walker residents to dump, within the guidelines below, whenever they can after delivery.
Individuals involved with coordination and supervision of the dumpsters are volunteers from the community–please treat them with respect! In order to continue this service, we MUST comply with the guidelines below.
We will also collect dues ($10/household, $5 for seniors) and canned goods for the C.A.R.E.S. food pantry at the dumpster location.
If you witness someone breaking the rules, please remind them of this!
Please do not overload dumpsters – do not fill beyond the top of the dumpster.
Please load from the back of the dumpster.
