Time for annual 'Spring Clean Up'
Mar 20, 2013 8:18 pm
Lebanon Public Works Department officials announced dates for the annual Spring Clean Up, which offers residents a chance to get rid of some of those hard-to-dispose-of items.
This year, the clean up will be the first two weeks in April. Officials said the intent is for residents to discard unwanted items generated at their homes.
Generally, the volume of the unwanted items should not exceed what could be loaded in the back of an average-size pick-up truck. Residents are asked to place all small and/or loose items in trash bags and separate all other items into three types – wood, metal or "other."
There are limits on what the city is willing to haul away and where workers will pick up things for dispoals. For instance, items will not be picked up at vacant houses or lots. Tires and hazardous waste, including chemicals, paint and wet batteries, will not be picked up. Commercial and industrial property waste will not be accepted, and neither will mattresses, box springs, carpet and carpet padding.
All compressors must be removed, and all doors must be removed from any refrigerator or freezer. Commercial property and contractual or construction waste from residential properties will not be accepted. Items brought from one address to another will not be picked up.
Questions regarding the pick up of a particular item or for more information as to whether the city can accept a particular item, contact the Lebanon Street Department at 615-444-0825 ext. 121, Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Officials said the city will continue to evaluate the program and make changes as necessary.
