Coming soon is 2017 Spring Cleanup - April 20th through April 23rd.   In addition to the Spearfish RUS waiving fees for residential disposal, City crews will offer City Residential pick up services for disposing of large items on the 20th and 21st.

The RUS, located 1.5 miles north of I-90's Exit 10 just off Highway 85 on Camp Comfort Road, will be open free of charge Thursday - Sunday, April 20th through April 23rd - 9AM to 5PM.
