The 2020 Annual Alley Cleanup will consist ofone and only one sweep through the City beginning October 19th. Noset schedule has been established; however, residential curbside services willbe first with residential regular alley services following. The city-widegeneral schedule for alley services will start after curbside collections arecompleted. The number of employees committed to the task may vary from day today; therefore, crews are unable to predict when they will be by a residence.City crews have a 20-minute time limit per residence. Any items remaining after 20 minutes of pickupwill be the responsibility of the property owner. As in years past, the City WILL NOT pick uptires and hazardous waste. Tires should be disposed of at the Ellis CountyLandfill, and hazardous waste items should be disposed of at the Ellis CountyHazardous Waste Facility. Please call 628-9460 or 628-9449 for detailedinformation. The Annual Alley Cleanup Program, set to beginOctober 19th, is an opportunity for residents to discard items that would not bepicked up in normal trash collection. Waste should be placed in four separate piles inpreparation of the Alley Cleanup. The piles should be organized in thefollowing manner: 1. Tree limbs and brush (no longer than 12 feetin length or 6 inches in diameter); bamboo bundled in 4’ lengths; all yard andgarden waste MUST be bagged 2. Construction and Demolition Debris, i.e.,lumber, drywall, bricks, sinks, wires, etc. (please pull or bend over nails andplace small quantities of concrete, bricks, and plaster in containers) 3. White Goods/Metals, i.e., guttering, siding,washing machines, dryers, refrigerators, metal swing sets, propane tanks forgrills, etc. 4. Municipal Waste (all other items), i.e.,furniture, carpet, tv’s, computers, etc. **TO AVOID WRONGFUL PICK UP, “TREASURED ITEMS”SHOULD BE TAGGED OR REMOVED FROM THE COLLECTION AREA** Again, the Alley Cleanup Program will begin onOctober 19th and will continue until one and only one complete sweep through the City has occurred. All items should be set out by this date, as crews cannot make any return trips. To avoid creating a nuisance, please DO NOT set any items out before October 3rd.
