Looking to get rid of old items before the holidays? The city of Lakewood and Pierce County Refuse are teaming up to offer a free fall cleanup for residents.

Pierce County Refuse is opening its Lakewood Transfer Station Saturday, Oct. 28 and Sunday, Oct. 29 between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. for the event.

A photo ID or a recent utility bill is required to prove Lakewood residency. If you need assistance, please contact (253) 875-5053/800-34-LEMAY.
