Things been piling up in the side yard all summer and haven’t had the time to make a trip to the dump?
If you’re a Lathrop resident, you won’t have to.
From Nov. 1 through Nov. 22, Republic Services – the City of Lathrop’s refuse contractor – is providing a free fall cleanup for all customers who are looking to clear some space at the house in preparation for the holidays and the cold winter months.
The dates of the pickups vary by neighborhood, but the criteria for what is acceptable to be collected – which is listed on the City of Lathrop’s website – provides a detailed list of what can and cannot be included in the pickup.
Acceptable items include:
Furniture and appliances.
TVs, monitors and other e-waste.
Up to four tires without rims
Bagged or boxed small items – containers can weigh no more than 50 pounds.
All of the items being collected must take up a space less than 2.5 cubic yards, and the pile should be no more than 3 feet wide by 7.5 feet long by 3 feet high – including appliances.
Items that will not be collected include:
Loose, unbagged items.
Bags or boxes over 50 pounds.
Engines or engine parts.
Hazardous waste.
Dirt, rocks, concrete or bricks.
Computers and other e-waste products should be separated from other items on collection day because they are collected in a separate truck.
Detailed maps showing the community and where and when pickups will occur are available for viewing on the City of Lathrop’s website by visiting and clicking on the announcements tab on the main page. By following the link to the brochure provided by Republic Services, residents can find their neighborhood on the chart and determine by typical collection day when their clean-up items will be removed.
For those who are unable to participate in the program, the Lovelace Transfer Station – maintained by the San Joaquin County Department of Public Works – is located at 2323 Lovelace Road in Manteca, and accepts loads from throughout the county. The cost of dumping varies depending on the type of vehicle – automobiles start at $14 and pickup trucks range from $16 to $37.25 depending on the size of the truck and whether the load goes above the cab or not.
