Citywide Cleanup

  • When: Saturday, May 18, 2019 9:00 am
  • Where: 115 N. 3rd St (map)

It’s time for spring cleaning!

Citywide Cleanup is for residential customers ONLY.

We ask that brush or yard waste be taken to the brush dump.

We also ask that bagged and boxed items need to be able to be handled by one person safely. If you have items left from remodeling or construction jobs, (such as lumber, plaster, drywall, floor covering and roofing material, etc.) it must be in small manageable bundles so one person can lift safely. Keep in mind if you can not lift it, neither can we.

The list below are items that NO LANDFILL or TRANSFER STATION will accept:
Car batteries, oil filters, fluorescent light bulbs, propane tanks, any asbestos materials, explosives, paint (we will take empty & dried up paint cans with the lid off so it’s visible), no hazardous liquids (such as fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, solvents, diesel fuel, gas, oil, transmission fluid, antifreeze, etc…) and no tires.

Refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners must be tagged that it is free of CFCs (refrigerant) by a licensed technician, and must have the appropriate paper work with it to be disposed of.

Please remember that the clean up is to help keep our community clean. It is not a way to circumvent the resident from getting an open top (roll-off) container for his/her home remodel or construction job. If you need an open top container for your project, please call 316-838-4920 to get one from Waste Connections.
