[ARCHIVED] Spring Clean-Up Day

This year’s “Spring Clean-Up” will be held the week of April 23, 2012, on your regular collection day as follows:
Residents north of 47th Street - MONDAY, APRIL 23, 2012

Residents south of 47th Street - THURSDAY, APRIL 26, 2012

The “Spring Clean-Up” day gives residents the opportunity on one day to set out an unlimited amount of household refuse. Residents are required to affix three stickers in total to the waste set out for collection. “Spring Clean-Up” is a one time pick-up. Unfortunately, if you miss your scheduled clean-up day it cannot be rescheduled.

Allied Waste will collect large and miscellaneous items from single and two-family residences at the curb such as:

EXAMPLES OF ACCEPTABLE ITEMS:
• Appliances
• Bulk items (bicycles, fans, etc.)
• Carpet (must be cut down to 4 feet in length, securely bundled, and no more than 30 lbs. in weight)
• Furniture

• Chairs

Acceptable items are to be placed next to your regular refuse at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on collection day. Items other than furniture, large bulk items and appliances must be placed in bags, cans and/or boxes not to exceed 50 lbs each.

EXAMPLES OF UNACCEPTABLE ITEMS:
• Construction and/or demolition debris
• Scrap wood and lumber
• Paint
• Concrete, asphalt, rocks bricks
• Car parts
