Spring Clean Up Day in the City of Plymouth has been set for Saturday, May 12 this year.

Spring Clean Up is the annual collection day when residents can dispose of extra items and especially large items at no additional cost. Spring Clean Up is for household disposal, not contractor disposal.

Officials noted that Spring Clean Up Day will not interrupt the regular weekly trash and recycle pick up.

Residents are cautioned not to place the brown automated trash cart out to the curb for Spring Clean Up. The non-automated trucks cannot empty them. No recycle or compost pick up will occur on Spring Clean Up Day.

Each household is allowed eight trash cans or the equivalent, plus two large items such as a washer, dryer, couch or desk as examples, according to information provided by the city.

All small refuse must be placed in containers strong enough to hold the weight such as plastic bags, cans or boxes. Containers must weigh less than 50 pounds.

Appliances containing Freon such as refrigerators, freezers, water coolers, air conditioners or dehumidifiers must have a valid certificate of Freon removal attached to the appliance. Residents should contact any heating and cooling company for this service, a city spokesman said. It is against the law to place a refrigerator at the curb without removing the doors, she added.

All items to be collected must be placed at the curb in a neat and safe manner as not to pose any danger to the collectors or other residents.

All trash must be at the curb by 6 a.m. on the Spring Clean Up date or it may not be picked up. The city has requested that no materials be placed at the curb more than 24 hours in advance of Spring Clean Up Day.

Items that will not be picked up on Spring Clean Up Day include; Tires; concrete or other major construction debris; auto parts; piles of dirt and/or sod; extremely large items (e.g., boats, cars, engines, motorcycles, snowmobiles, pianos, etc.); hazardous materials (e.g., gasoline, fuel or motor oil, paint thinners, pesticides and medical waste.
