Volunteers looking to clean up Evart neighborhoods

EVART — In an effort to help clean up local neighborhoods, residents in Evart are being asked to “Team Up 2 Clean Up.”

The event, which will take place on Saturday, May 4, provides residents within the city limits to receive a special curbside collection of old or broken items they want to part ways with.

Residents can place up to four furniture items and 10 bags of general refuse at their curb. Any items not bagged correctly will not be collected.

Participants must place their items before 7 a.m. on May 4.

An additional drop-off site will be located at the water/wastewater treatment plant, 611 W. 10th St. This is intended for residents who have more material than what will be allowed for on the curb collection. Those utilizing the drop-off site will not be limited to four furniture items or 10 bags of general refuse.

The drop-off site will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on May 4, and Sunday, May 5.

Acceptable items are: Barbecues (no propane), basketball hoops (six feet or less), bed frames, bookshelves, box springs, bureaus, cabinets, carpet roll (no larger than 4-feet wide and 50 pounds), chairs/recliners, closet doors, computers, dresssers, doors, dryers, desks, dishwashers, filing cabinets, garage door motors/track, hutches, lawnmowers (no gas or oil), mirrors (if properly wrapped), mattresses, microwaves, patio furniture and umbrella, sinks, sofas, spa covers (cut in half), stereos, stoves, tables, televisions, tires (two per home if clean and dried), toilets, washers, water heaters, weigh benches, wheel barrows and wood (4-foot or less bundles).

Items which will not be accepted for curbside or drop-off are: auto parts, batteries, boats, cricks, camper shells, concrete, construction materials, drywall, engines, fenders, garage doors, glass, hazardous waste, lawnmowers (with gas or oil), paint and other liquids, pianos, plywood, riding lawnmower, roofing, satellite dishes, shopping carts, shower modules, spas, oil, trailers, transmissions, tree stumps or yard waste.
