Fall and Spring Clean–up

  • Your Spring or Fall Clean–up will occur on one day only.
  • In some Towns and Villages, Clean–up is on a different day and week than your regular collection.
  • In all cases, normal waste-resource collection (recyclables, green carts and garbage) stays on the same schedule.
  • All items must be roadside by 8:00 am on pick up day, and may not go out more than 7 days prior to the clean-up.

Refer to the map on the back cover of our calendar to determine your pick-up day. If you live in one of the Towns or the Village of New Minas your specific clean-up date is listed below. If you live in Zone A or Zone B then your pick-up will take place on your regular collection day during the period indicated.
