Fall and Spring Clean–up

  • Your Spring or Fall Clean–up will occur on one day only; once in the spring and once in the fall.
  • Your regular collection (i.e. Tuesday Week 1) is assigned a specific week for clean-up. The clean-up week will fall on the opposite week as your regular collection day.
  • Place clean-up items out the weekend before your cleanup week and make sure it is at roadside by 7:00 am on Monday.
  • The Clean-up truck will be along sometime that week, Monday-Friday, to pick up the items. The truck will be by only once.

Refer to the map on the back cover of our calendar to determine your regular pick-up day.

Reminder: Any bagged items must be in clear transparent bags.
