City of Ocean Shores 2021 Spring Cleanup Announcement


2021 Spring Cleanup


Ocean Shores, WA – April 14, 2021 – Spring clean-up will be different this year for Ocean Shores citizens.  We are going to a voucher-based program for this year only. That means that you will need to show your utility bill to pick up a voucher, take the voucher to the waste disposal site with you, and limit your load to one ton. 


Several cities in GH County have used the voucher system very successfully. We believe that can do so as well. This will give significant cost savings to taxpayers, allow disposal of waste when it is convenient for you, and minimize in-person interactions. Similar to these other local agencies, the spring clean-up will allow for Ocean Shores residents, at no charge, to take up to one car, pickup, or small trailer of waste, up to one ton, and dispose of it at Lemay’s Grays Harbor Transfer Station in Montesano.  Disposal of up to four car tires as well as one refrigerator or freezer is permissible, which is included in the one-ton limitation.  No cement, medical waste, asbestos, ammunition, or explosives will be accepted.  This program will be available for use from May 1, 2021 to May 31, 2021. 


Vouchers distribution will occur from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM on April 22nd, April 26th, and April 28th at the Ocean Shores Convention Center.  Ocean Shores residents are asked to bring and display a current copy of their residential utility bill to receive a voucher.  


The Transfer Station is located at 29 Gavett Lane North and is open 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Friday and 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Saturday.  Electronic waste such as computer towers, laptops, televisions, and monitors can be recycled at the Transfer Station during operating hours along with other recyclables.  Assistance for electronic waste disposal is available on Tuesday’s from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM.  Hazardous materials such as paint, oils, cleaners, and propane tanks are only accepted from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM on May 1 and May 5 at the Olympic Highway facility, located at 4201 Olympic Highway, 2.5 miles east of Aberdeen on Highway 12.
