Yep, it is that time of year again — to de-clutter and tackle a little early spring maintenance. Below are a few resources for you, to help make your spring cleaning a little easier!


Dispose of trash, yard waste, and metals free of charge using dumpsters located throughout the city, March 28 – May 7, Mon-Fri, 8AM – 6PM and Sat 8AM – 3PM (dumpsters at the compost yard are open on Sat until 6PM). Please separate the yard waste and metals from the trash and put them in the appropriate dumpsters. The dumpsters will be closed nightly, and it is unlawful to leave items on the ground.

  1. This is a really great idea! I wish that my city would put out dumpsters for spring cleaning. As it is I have to rent one myself if I want to get rid of extra yard trash. It isn’t bad or hard, it would just be convenient if the city did it for me.
