All trash placed in the alleys will be picked up at no additional charge to residents in the targeted zone area. Normally, trash left in alleys is charged to the property owner as a special pickup fee with a minimum charge of $37.35.
Residents should place items in the alley prior to their designated week so items are not missed. Also, items need to be placed on the sides of the alley to allow collection trucks access.
The second pick up area – running April 7th through the 11th – is for residents south of Ash and east of Gold or the Columbus Highway.
The week of April 14th will be free alley trash pickup for residents living south of Ash and west of Gold or the Columbus Highway.
And the final week – April 21st-25th – will be for residents living north of Ash and west of Gold.
Contact city hall officials at 546-8848 for more information or to let them know if you will be taking advantage of the free alley pick-up service so the Solid Waste Department can schedule pickup routes effectively.
Also, there is no charge year-round for residents hauling trash to the transfer station located at 5470 Highway 549.
