Who picks up the yellow Clean Up Day bags?
The volunteers, who pick up the yellow bags on Clean Up Day and transport them to the landfill, call themselves the "Heavy Haulers". The crew and the pickup route are organized by Justin at Cowles Heating. Many companies volunteer their time and their trucks to pick up yellow bags. This is a list from 2020: Alaska waste, Florcraft carpet 1, Denali group, C&R pipe, Hurst expediting, Skidmore machine, Shredway, Frontier supply, MacCheynes carpet plus, Cowles heating.
What if a group picks up an area on a different day than Clean Up Day?
If you organize a clean up crew on a different day than Clean Up Day you will need to have someone take the yellow bags to the FNSB landfill. Please secure the Clean Up Day bags in your vehicle! You don't want your group's hard work to end up back on our roadways. The Clean Up Day Committee does apply for a tipping fee waiver from the Borough for about a month around Clean Up Day. The bags are weighed and the landfill keeps track of the tonnage. If it is taken to a local transfer station, it is treated as regular household trash.
