Centralia announces dates for spring city-wide cleanup

CENTRALIA — The City of Centralia has announced that this year’s spring city-wide cleanup will be held Monday, April 20th through Friday, April 24th.
This curbside pickup service is provided by the City of Centralia Public Works Department. Participation is limited to single-family residences, town homes, condominiums and apartments that do not exceed four units per building.
All items are to be placed on the curb by 6 a.m. on the assigned pickup day.
Any items not longer than 5 feet or more than 50 pounds left at the curbside at any of the above defined residential units will be picked up, with the exception of yard waste, including grass clippings, leaves, brush and tree material; household refuse/garbage that should be put out for normal collection; large quantities of rocks, concrete and construction materials including roofing materials, siding and lumber – small amounts will be taken, but no more than a 5 gallon bucket; tires or cans of paint; large automobile parts such as engines and transmissions; and lawnmowers or small engines which still contain gasoline or oil
Do not mix these items with trash to be picked up on normal collection days and do not pile items on top of other items. Crews will not sort through material. If an unapproved item is on top of an approved item, your items will not be collected.
Residents are also asked to place smaller items in a container such as a box or a bag. Please consider recycling any cardboard, glass, aluminum and paper products at Clean & Green’s Recycling Center located on West McCord Street.
All items must be at the curb (not in the alley) by 6:00 a.m. on your normal garbage pickup day. Even if your garbage pickup is in your alley, these items are to be placed curbside. The route will only be covered once, no exceptions.
The City also reminds residents that leaf vacuuming will begin next week.
