Spring Clean-Ups Coming Soon!

posted 4/4/2018

If the spring has sprung from your old sofa, you’re in luck because Spring Clean-Up is just around the corner!

Spring Clean-Up in your community is an opportunity to get rid of unwanted trash that won’t fit in your garbage cart or may require a large item sticker. Examples include a couch, desk, lamp or chair. When you’re considering setting an item out for Spring Clean-Up, ask yourself:

  • Can two people lift it?
  • Is my pile smaller than the bed of a pick-up truck?

If the answers to these two questions are yes, then kick those items to the curb by 6 a.m. on your scheduled day. Following the guidelines will help maintain consistent garbage rates, keep everyone safe and support continuation into the future.

So, what are the guidelines? Besides the two items already mentioned, here’s what NOT to place at your curb for Spring Clean-Up: appliances, hazardous waste and tires. TVs are only allowed in select communities so check with your local City Hall. Only residents on city services are eligible to participate in Spring Clean-Up. Find your city’s date!
