City gets ready for annual spring cleaning week
Morning lows in the 20s don’t seem spring-like, but spring cleaning soon will be upon us.
Hillsboro’s annual cleanup week, when residents can dispose of extra trash and small limbs at no extra charge, is planned for April 23 to 27.
The next day, Hillsboro Young Professionals will sponsor its second annual yard cleanup, providing assistance to those who call the Chamber of Commerce at (620) 947-3506 and ask for help.
During the week, items will be collected once on the same day as regular trash pickup if placed where trash normally is placed by 7:30 a.m. Alley pickup will not be provided during cleanup week.
Residents are being cautioned to place larger items away from mailboxes, utility poles, meters, and other landscaping so they can easily be lifted by heavy equipment.
All items must be bagged, boxed, or bundled. Branches and trash must be placed in separate piles. Recyclables, leaves, grass, concrete, and hazardous materials such as paint, batteries, and vehicle oil will not be accepted.
Residents must contact city offices to arrange for free appliance pickup or paid tire disposal during cleanup week, which applies to residential homes and rental units only.
More information is available from the city office at (620) 947-3162.
