(Deming) – The annual free alley pick-up service offered by the city of Deming starts Monday.
Again the city has been divided into four areas, and each area will have a free pick-up week in April or May.
That means all trash placed in the alleys will be picked up at no charge to residents that week. Please make sure items are placed on the sides of the alley to allow the collection trucks access.
The first pickup area – for residents living north of Ash and east of Gold – is set for Monday through Friday, April 15th-19th.
The second pick up area – set for the week of April 22nd – is for residents south of Ash and east of Gold or the Columbus Highway.
The week of April 29th-May 3rd will be free alley trash pickup for residents living south of Ash and west of Gold or the Columbus Highway.
And the final week – May 6th-10th – will be for residents living north of Ash and west of Gold.
The advantage to participating in the free pick-up service is that you get your spring cleaning done without having to pay the city to haul off your debris.
Normally, trash left in alleys is charged to the property owner as a special pickup fee with a minimum charge of $29.72.
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.
