Village Clean-Up Day
The Village of Canwood will be once again having a “Clean-Up” day where we will pick up any items you wish to have hauled to the landfill. Items can be such things as old furniture, metal, wood scraps, old appliances and other items you may have that are not regular household garbage.
The Village will also continue with the twist of a “Swap” day, as one person’s junk is another person’s treasure. Tuesday, May 24, 2016, will be the swap day and anything that is placed on your curb that day is free for anyone else to pick up as their treasure. After lunch on the Wednesday, May 25, 2016, the remaining items will be picked-up and taken to the landfill.
This will be a FREE event for the residents of the Village with the exception of tires (fee will be based on size) and refrigerators or large appliances ($25.00 freon disposal fee). If you require assistance with these larger items, please contact that Village office.
Please place all items for clean-up/swap at your front curb by 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 24. Pick-up of items will begin onWednesday, May 25 and continue on Thursday if needed.
When you’re clearing out the garage or basement this spring, please remember:
Please keep the following items OUT of our Orange Recycle Bins:
• Fish Guts
• Household Garbage
• Hazardous Chemical Containers
• Auto Parts/Batteries
• Scrap Metal
• Plastic Pipe
• Wire/Coat Hangers
• Artificial Plants
• Grass Clippings
*All of the above items have been found in our bins which contaminate the load. This means having to move the entire load into the Landfill rather than being recycled.
Note: Please bring all the above items directly to the Landfill.
