Household Spring Cleanup
Each year Mayor Jennings announces the dates of the Household Spring Cleanup, which provides city residents with an opportunity to dispose of their excessive household trash. Only residents who live in residential dwellings with four (4) or less units and who utilize our weekly waste collection program may participate in this program.

Trash should be placed curbside, after 7p.m., the evening prior to your scheduled spring cleanup day.

If your normal collection day is Monday and you live in the South End, South of Morton Avenue or East of Delaware Avenue, your spring cleanup is on Monday, May 10, 2010.
