The City of Platteville annual fall clean up will be held Monday and Tuesday on the same day as a one- or two-family house’s normal refuse collection.
Items must be placed neatly at the curb by 7 a.m.
Specific items that will not be picked up include: batteries & tires, appliances including microwaves, refuse from major construction and remodeling projects, as well as oil, anti-freeze, insecticides, and hazardous chemicals. Boy Scout Troop 82 will collect appliances for a donation; call 778-0707 to arrange pickup.
Electronics (computers, printers, computer monitors, mice, keyboards, and all accessories, televisions, DVD players, VCRs, DVRs, fax machines and cell phones) also will not be picked up. To dispose of an electronic item, contact Faherty Recycling, 348-9586, for additional information.
All items must be stacked neatly and be in a pile no larger than 10 feet x 4 feet x 4 feet. Scrap metal should be stacked neatly separate from other refuse. Scrap metal and yard waste does not count toward the maximum size limit.
Garden and yard waste will be included in the fall clean up and will be picked up by city crews on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of next week only. Garden and yard waste should be bagged separately from weekly garbage. The $1 bags are not required during this special pick up only.
