Items can be taken to city garage

TELL CITY – The Tell City Board of Public Works and Safety has set today through Thursday as the dates for the 2013 spring cleanup. Rules are similar to past year’s events. Postcards were mailed recently and give the specific dos and don’ts.

Items will be picked up with residents’ normal trash on the same collection days. Household trash must still be bagged and tagged for pickup. No tires or scrap wood will be picked up. Also prohibited are refrigerators, air conditioners and any other items with Freon, paint cans, propane tanks and dangerous or toxic items such as batteries and paint. Large dumpsters will be located at 1101 Fifth St. next to the city garage and residents may take their items to the dumpsters during regular hours of 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

An additional $10 fee will be assessed for excess loads taken to the garage.

For more information on Tell City’s spring cleanup, call the trash collection department in City Hall at 547-3266 or the city garage at 547-3222.

Trash-department customers will pay an extra dollar this year to help cover costs of the cleanup week. This year’s charge of $4 will appear on bills mailed early this month.
