“This program is something people look forward to every year. It’s an opportunity to clean out their garage, attic, etc. But the good news is that it’s not just a junk removal program,” Coun says. Dylan Kruger. “There’s a lot of reuse and recycling going on, and people come in and look at people’s stuff they’re going to dispose of.”
The program was canceled over the past two years due to pandemic-related concerns and was replaced last year by the city’s large-item take-back program, which allows residents to dispose of up to four large household items year-round.
Oversized item pickups will continue to exist and will be added to the Spring Clean-Up program.

At a time when we are trying to get out of the cycle, we are glad that we have listened to the voices of our residents and have been able to revive this while maintaining the large item pick-up program.Spring Clean-Up is bigger and better than ever. It’s going to be something, and I’m doing my best to make sure it’s maintained and moving forward.”
