Spring Clean Up
Annual Collection Day
Spring Clean Up is the annual collection day where residents can dispose of extra items and especially large items at no additional cost.

2015 Schedule
Will occur on a Saturday in Late April or Early May
Collection will take place in all areas on the same day.

Top Ten Things to Remember for Spring Clean Up
  • This will not interrupt your regular weekly trash and recycle pick up. 
  • Do not place your brown, automated, trash cart out to the curb for Spring Clean Up; the non-automated trucks cannot empty them.
  • No recycle or compost pick up will occur on Spring Clean Up Day.
  • Each household is allowed eight trash cans or the equivalent, plus two large items (i.e. washer, dryer, couch, desk, etc.).
  • All small refuse must be placed in containers strong enough to hold the weight (i.e. plastic bags, cans, and/or boxes; but must weigh less than 50 pounds).
  • Appliances containing freon; such as refrigerators, freezers, water coolers, air conditioners, and dehumidifiers, must have a valid certificate of freon removal attached to the appliance. Contact any heating and cooling company for this service. 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. 
  • All trash must be at the curb by 6:00 am on the Spring Clean Up date or it may not be picked up. Please do not place materials to the curb more than 24 hours in advance of the Spring Clean Up date. 
  • Prohibited Items: Tires; concrete or major construction debris; auto parts; piles of dirt and/or sod; extremely large items including, but not limited to: boats, cars, engines, motorcycles, snowmobiles and pianos; hazardous materials including, but not limited to: gasoline, fuel and motor oil, paint thinners, pesticides, medical waste, etc. 
  • If you have any questions, please call (734) 453-7737.

The Spring Clean Up is for household disposal, not contractor disposal.
