2020 Residential Spring cleanup will begin April 4th, 2020. Residential customers can clean up their yards and/or garages. We will collect items that are normally not placed with household trash, such as: couches, mattresses, refrigerators and air conditioners (the Freon must be removed), etc. Items that will not be picked up include: construction debris, yard waste, tree limbs, brush. No hazardous chemicals such as: paints, freon, pesticides, herbicides, etc. For information on disposal of antifreeze, batteries, oil & tires go to "Household Hazardous Waste Disposal."

For this clean up, we cannot take yard waste of any kind, remodeling or demolition debris such as broken concrete, bricks, lumber, sheetrock, shingles or junk cars, or any hazardous waste such as tires, batteries, paints, etc. Please don't use polycarts, wagons, wheelbarrows, etc., as containers for clean up items.
