TELL CITY - Tell City's annual weeklong cleanup is set for next Monday through Thursday, June 9-12.

Miscellaneous items will be picked up on residents' standard trash-pickup days and collected at the same time as bagged trash.

No tires will be collected by city crews. Also prohibited are paint cans, batteries and other toxic items and very heavy furniture such as hide-a-beds. Refrigerators, air conditioners and anything else containing Freon won't be picked up, nor will scrap wood or roofing materials, including asphalt shingles.

Tell City residents will be able to drop off items themselves in bins located at the city garage Wednesday, June 11, from 4 to 7 p.m.

Postcards explaining rules for the cleanup were mailed last week. For more information on what can be disposed of, call the city's trash-collection department at 547-3266 or city garage at 547-3222.
