New Date for Spring Clean-Up

Spring Clean-Up, originally scheduled for late April, has been rescheduled and will take place on the week of July 27 on your normal collection day. Now called Summer Clean-Up, this program will be similar to Spring Clean-Up but there are some important changes to note:

  • Appliances (such as Refrigerators, Dehumidifiers, Microwaves, Water Heaters, Trash Compactors, Furnaces, Freezers, Air Conditioners, Dishwashers, Light Ballasts, Washers, Dryers, Stoves, and Garbage Disposal) will be collected through a separate City program called Bulk Item Collection. If you’d like to have an appliance collected now (or at any time during the year) please visit:
  • No construction debris or building materials.
  • All garbage must be bagged or boxed and secured.
  • Set items out no earlier than the day before collection.
  • One pick up truck load limit per household, items must be able to be collected by a two-person crew.
  • Be sure to fill your container first with anything that fits.
  • Only leave items at the curb intended for City collection.
  • Examples of accepted items include Chairs, File Cabinets, Computers, Tables, Couchs, Grills (no tank), Recliners, Televisions, Desks, Mattresses, Shelves, Toilets, Dressers, Monitors, Sinks, and TV Stands, etc.
