Lewiston to provide “Clean-up Assistance Week”

Lewiston’s Clean-up Assistance Week will occur from April 21 to 28 at the city’s Solid Waste Facility at 424 River Road. During this week only, the city will waive tip fees and use of the Punch Pass.

In addition to its regular hours of operation (7:15 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., Monday through Friday), the Solid Waste Facility will be open on two Saturdays, April 21 and 28, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The facility will not be open on Sundays.

This assistance is for Lewiston residents only; proof of residency (driver’s license, tax receipt and/or utility bill) will be required. Failure to provide proof of residency may require the customer to pay for disposal of their waste material.

Tip fees will not be waived for commercial accounts, including owners of multi-unit apartment buildings as defined in the city’s Code of Ordinances.

All materials brought to the Solid Waste Facility for disposal must be separated into the following categories:

Bulky waste, including old furniture, carpeting, mattresses, etc.

Construction and demolition debris, including, but not limited to, building materials such as plaster and lath, plumbing fixtures, insulation, asphalt, wall board, pipes, pressure treated wood, metal conduits, etc.

Wood, including demolition wood that is free of metal, sheetrock, insulation, and other solid waste; brush and tree waste that does not include stumps; and wood furniture. (This category does not include pressure treated wood.)

Scrap metal, including appliances such as stoves, dryers, washing machines, etc. (This category does not include engines, gear boxes, lawnmowers, or tanks – whether full or empty – which contained chemicals or fuels of any kind.)

Televisions/computer monitors (no more than seven per customer).

Refrigerators/freezers that contain refrigerant.

Tires (no more than four).

No. 20 Propane tanks (no more than two).

In addition, the Lewiston Public Works Department will collect brush at curbside throughout the week. All brush to be collected by city staff must be at curbside no later than Sunday, April 22. Butt ends should be placed facing the street, and quantities are limited to no more than two standard pick-up truck loads.

Once city staff have collected brush from a given street, they will not return to collect additional brush. Stumps will not be collected.
