Spring Clean Up Day in the City of Plymouth will be May 4.
The day offers residents the opportunity to dispose of items of nearly all sizes at no additional cost. Spring Clean Up is limited to household disposal, and is not provided for contractor material disposal.
According to the City of Plymouth Department of Municipal Services, the special clean up day will not interrupt regular weekly trash and recycling pick up.
Residents are asked to place items at the curb but not use the brown automated trash carts for the special pick up. The non-automated trucks used during Clean Up Day cannot empty them.
No recycling or compost pick up will take place during Spring Clean Up Day.
Each household in the city is allowed eight trash cans or the equivalent, plus two large items such as a washer, dryer, couch, or desk for pick up.
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, according to city officials.
Appliances containing Freon like refrigerators, freezers, water coolers, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, etc., must have a valid certificate of Freon removal attached to the appliance. Residents can contact any heating and cooling company for the service, officials said. It is against the law to place a refrigerator at the curb without removing the doors.
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, officials said.
All trash must be at the curb by 6 a.m. on the Spring Clean Up date or it may not be picked up. Residents are asked not to place materials to the curb more than 24 hours in advance of Spring Clean Up Day.
Items that will not be picked up include: tires; concrete or other major construction debris; auto parts; piles of dirt and/or sod; extremely large items such as boats, cars, engines, motorcycles, snowmobiles, pianos, etc.; hazardous materials like gasoline, fuel or motor oil, paint thinners, pesticides, medical waste, etc..
