City officials confirmed the clean-up program will run from April 18 to April 22 this spring.

PORT ORCHARD — Over the weekend, the City of Port Orchard signaled that the COVID-19 pandemic is likely coming to an end with the announcement that it will be sponsoring a spring clean-up for the first time since the fall of 2019.

City officials confirmed the clean-up program will run from April 18 to April 22. Port Orchard — in coordination with solid waste service provider Waste Management — has hosted the event since the early 1990s. It’s an opportunity for residents living within the City of Port Orchard to clean out their closets and place items curbside for pick-up by a service provider truck.

While the popular event has been on hold for more than two years, Tony Lang, operations manager for the city’s Public Works department, said the hiatus caused by COVID-19 allowed officials to iron out some program details.

Lang said the spring clean-up is a popular city service as well as one of the more visible city-sponsored events.

“We’re glad to be able to schedule the clean-up for the first time in a number of years,” he said.

According to Waste Management and the city, some items set out will be picked up free of charge, while others require a small fee.
