During cleanup week, City Administrator Mike Palmer says residents are not required to use yard waste stickers but they are required to use biodegradable bags or twine for yard waste, with the cut ends facing the curb.
“Stack it up neatly with the ends facing out to the street so the guys can get it into the chipper. If you have big piles of trash, stack it as neatly as possible. The City reserves the right to refuse to pick up some of that stuff and ask it to be repackaged.”
Each resident is allowed up to two hopper loads for free and anything beyond that is a $25 per hopper load charge. Any appliance such as refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers, air-conditioning units or anything with freon will be a $40 charge and all other appliances are $25 each. Special charges will also be applied for furniture, carpet, lumber, construction debris, windows and padding. Palmer adds that any charges will appear on the monthly garbage bill.
Residents are reminded to have their items at the curbside by 6am to ensure pickup. Cleanup week will be from April 24th through the 27th.
