Vandalia residents who are customers of Doty Sanitation will have the opportunity to get rid of unwanted items during the City’s Annual Cleanup Week April 24-28, 2017.
The unwanted items are to be placed alongside regular trash on residents’ normal trash pickup days. It is asked that residents pile items on the curbside in a manner that they would wish to pick it up themselves. Any lumber should be cut in reasonable lengths, stacked and if possible bundled into reasonable weights.
Residents wishing to get rid of old appliances and other large items are not required to call City Hall. They need only to place those large items out with their regular trash. City workers will be following Doty Sanitation crews during Cleanup Week and picking up large items set out by residents.
Some items are not being accepted during Cleanup Week. Those include paint in wet stage, car batteries, tires, any brush, landscape waste, construction materials or hazardous waste materials.
