It's the season for spring cleaning and Solid Waste Services is making it easier by offering two free dump days for people in the Anchorage area including Girdwood.

The free dump days mark the start and end of the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce's Citywide Cleanup. SWS says last year, they donated over $140,000 to help with the Citywide Cleanup.

"We work hard to provide safe, efficient and innovative solid waste disposal to the Municipality's residents all year long," said Mark Spafford, Solid Waste Services' general manager. "We are proud to offer this well-loved community service each year."

The free dump days will be held at the Anchorage Regional Landfill and Girdwood Transfer Station.
