City plans cleanup week

October 8, 2012

The city will host its annual fall cleanup week Oct. 22-26.

During the special week residents can discard large, unwanted items such as refrigerators or old furniture not normally picked up with the trash collection. Brush, rocks, building materials, leaves, grass, tires, batteries or hazardous materials will not be picked up.

Brush, grass and other yard waste can be dropped off at the city’s yard waste facility at South New York Avenue and East 28th Street.

Unwanted items must be placed in the same location as regular refuse collection and should be put outside on regularly scheduled collection days.

For more information call 827-3000.
