City-wide cleanup starts Monday

    It is time to put those rakes, mowers, clippers and brooms to work getting your place spruced up for spring during the annual city-wide cleanup that starts Monday and continues through Friday.
    During cleanup week, city residents can take unwanted furniture, brush and other junk to the traditional location, about one-quarter of a mile east of Flowserve on East Jefferson Street, from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
    The same rules apply as in recent years, according to City Manager Marc Maxwell.
    “No household hazardous waste will be accepted, which means no tires, no batteries, no paint and no chemicals,” Maxwell said. “The list of items that will not be accepted includes appliances with refrigerant in them. We will take them, but they have to be certified that the refrigerant has been safely removed.”
    Maxwell said the city would have employees on hand at the collection site to help with unloading when they can, “but be prepared to unload your own trailer.”
    The cleanup is open to non-commercial city residents only. A city utility bill and photo identification will be required to unload.
