Decatur neighborhood cleanups start this month

Posted by Dan Whisenhunt April 7, 2016

The city will hold its annual neighborhood cleanup days, starting April 9. The city holds a cleanup day each Saturday to grab items that aren’t easily disposable.

Items the city will pickup include:

– Yard trimmings

– Building materials (that are not from the work of private contractors)

– Tires

– Furniture

– Appliances (not containing Freon)

The city will not collect:

– Liquids

– Dirt

– Bricks

– Blocks

– Stone, rocks, or concrete

– Motor vehicle batteries or parts

“All items to be collected should be placed at the curb no later than 7:30a.m.,” the announcement from the city says. “This ensures that we do not have to rerun routes for late setouts. Collections run until
3:30 p.m., or until finished, whichever is sooner.”

The cleanup will begin with the Oakhurst neighborhood. Here is the full schedule, provided by the city of Decatur.
