Clean-up days give residents a chance to dispose of bulk waste

Galesburg, Ill - The City of Galesburg will hold clean-up days Sept. 17 - 21.

Clean up days will give residents a way to easily get ride of bulk items they would like to dispose of.

Residents are encouraged to clean out attics, garages, basements and backyards by getting rid of any large unwanted items. During this special week, most items can be placed at the curb for pick up without extra charge. Items will be collected only on residents’ normal refuse day, not the entire week.

There are some restrictions to this event. Items that can not be disposed of in a landfill will not be accepted. Liquid paint, auto batteries, propane tanks, demo waste, concrete chunks, large auto parts, motor oil and tires cannot be accepted. Also, certain electronic devices such as computer equipment, televisions, FAX machines, DVD player/recorders, VCRs, video game consoles, iPods/portable digital music players, digital converter boxes, and cable/satellite receivers will not be accepted.

All loose items are required to be bagged or bundled. Doors should be removed from large appliances for safety.
