Dates set for community cleanup
Three dates have been set for community cleanup this year.
The Regional Board of Mayors last week set three dates when residents of the various cities and towns can get rid of lawn and garden debris.
Electric City Mayor Jerry Sands, whose city manages the Delano Regional Transfer Station, said the spring cleanup drive where residents can get rid of lawn and garden waste is scheduled for Saturday, April 21, through Saturday, April 28. The methods the different cities and towns use for the cleanup vary, and residents can call their respective city halls for more information.
Two fall cleanup drives will be held again this year. The first is Oct. 6-13, a Saturday through Saturday schedule; and the second fall drive is Nov. 10-17, also Saturday through Saturday.
Two fall dates are set, Sands said, because some autumns, the leaves haven’t fallen by the October date.
During the fall dates, residents can take lawn and garden waste to the transfer station for a free deposit.
Also, mayors learned that the spring hazardous waste pickup at the Delano site is scheduled for May 11. A fall date hasn’t been set, Sands told mayors
