Voucher program expanded for large unwanted household items

FALLBROOK — Keep Fallbrook Clean and Green has announced the expansion of its free coupon/voucher program for downtown residents to dispose of large unwanted household items such as sofas, beds, dressers and other similar items, free of charge.

Each coupon/voucher entitles an eligible resident in any multi-unit apartment complex, trailer park or single-family home in the downtown area to take one free truckload of three to four large and bulky unwanted household items to Fallbrook Waste and Recycling at 550 West Aviation Road.

The voucher program has been made possible by a grant from Fifth District Supervisor Bill Horn, through his Discretionary Project Fund, to assist low-income residents of Fallbrook in disposing of their unwanted large household items.

This program will end on December 31, so eligible residents are urged to call as soon as possible.

Any eligible resident wishing to obtain a voucher should call (760) 728-1816. The coupon/voucher, good for 30 days, will be mailed to the caller, who must then provide proof of residency in the targeted area when they bring their items to Fallbrook Waste and Recycling.

Coupon-holders who overload their truck with more than four items will be charged the regular disposal fee, less the $30 value of the coupon.

Targeted area

All residents of multi-unit apartments and trailer parks in the downtown Fallbrook area (bordered by Hillcrest Lane on the north, Stage Coach Lane on the east, Reche/Palomino on the south and Alturas on the west) are eligible to participate in the program.

The program has recently expanded to include residents of single-family homes provided that they do not currently have trash disposal service.

Eligible items

1) Household furniture and appliances: beds, mattresses and box springs, carpeting, sofas, tables (remove legs), chairs, desks and all other similar furniture items; refrigerators, stoves, washing machines, hot water heaters/softeners, air conditioners, and similar appliances.

2) Residential items only.

Items not eligible

1) Construction debris, business items, tires, household hazardous waste, electronic waste, microwaves, green waste, small items that would ordinarily fit into a standard 35-gallon household trash container.
