Spring curbside waste pick-up scheduled

Staff Writer

Washington’s annual residential curbside pick-up program will be from Monday to April 25.

This is an opportunity to dispose of large, bulky items not collected during normal weekly trash collection.

Collection will be the same day of week as your regular household trash pick-up and will be handled directly by Grimm Bros.

Items should be set out at the curb the evening before regular trash collection day to be sure they are not missed.

There will be no return trips.

Items should be placed in cans, bags or bundles weighing less than 50 pounds whenever possible.

Large items (furniture, etc.) should be placed as near to the curb as possible.

This program is provided to residential customers who fall under the city of Washington’s residential waste collection service contract with Grimm Bros.

The following items will not be collected for disposal: tires, large auto parts, appliances, batteries, used oil, demolition debris and concrete, yard waste and any type of liquid or household hazardous waste (paint, solvents, turpentine, insecticides, pesticides, fluorescent tubes, etc.).

Residents may make special arrangements for appliance pick-up (washers, dryers, etc.) by contacting Dave Mulligan at 678-6357, or TNT Recycling at 635-4642.

Do not place appliances near curb. Most appliances will be collected free of charge. Appliances containing freon coolants (refrigerators, air conditioners, etc.) may require a nominal fee.

Brush pick-up service will begin May 19.
