City-wide cleanup set for October 20th

UPDATE (October 6, 2018)
Residents are advised that bulky waste pick-ups are scheduled to start at 7am on Saturday, October 20th. In order to make sure your bulky waste is picked up that day, please have it out the night before.

ORIGINAL STORY
At the Mayor’s Town Hall meeting on September 23, Council Member Anthony Heddlesten announced that he was working out the details for a citywide clean-up day on October 20th.

Council Member Heddlesten said he had already contacted the Waste Commission of Scott County about helping to provide iLiveHere garbage bags, gloves, tongs and safety vests. The vests, tongs and left-over materials will need to be returned to the Waste Commission after the event.

The date for the citywide clean-up corresponds to the bulky waste pick-up date the City has scheduled with its waste hauler, Republic Services.
