EAST GRAND FORKS — Residential fall cleanup is scheduled next week from Monday, Oct. 3, through Friday, Oct. 7, with a electronic and hazardous waste drop off on Saturday, Oct. 8.

Residents will need to have their items out and ready to picked up on the same day as garbage pickup. Glass and construction debris will not be accepted for berm pickup.

The hazardous waste and electronic drop off will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at public works located at 1001 2nd St NE. Questions can be directed to Public Works at (218) 773-1313.

Going forward, Grand Forks should reconsider and agree to pony up its share of the consulting and scoping fees. Even better, Polk and Grand Forks counties also should join in the sharing of costs, further reducing the impact to each of those entities – all of which will benefit from a new bridge over the Red River.
