SPRING CLEANUP IS COMING
Cudahy will soon be conducting its annual Spring Cleanup. Check your basement, attic, garage, or yard for any items you would care to discard. Items containing refrigerants (refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers, air conditioners), electronic waste (computers, printers, mojnitors, televisions, dvd players, vcr’s and telephones), hazardous waste, paint, waste drain oil, fuel, lubricants, or other liquids in containers or fuel tanks cannot be taken. This free pickup is limited to fifteen (15) minutes of loading time. Please place your items at the curb.
Yard waste may be put out for the FREE Spring Cleanup. PLEASE DO NOT RAKE YARD WASTE INTO THE STREET. Yard waste and debris must be placed in cardboard boxes or large paper “yard waste bags” (Hardware & Home Supply stores carry these types of bags) and placed at the curb. We cannot accept yard waste in plastic bags as this material is composted. Branches left full length will also be collected. Branches must be placed at the curb parallel with the road. Keep yard waste, branches and trash separate as they are collected with different trucks. Items are collected by type of material (junk, brush, metals, etc.) with each truck handling just one type. As a result, items may be collected at different times or different days of the week. Orders for special collections cannot be taken during the Spring Cleanup. Please call 769-2216 if you have any questions or need further information. Please take advantage of the FREE Spring Cleanup as it is the only free pickup of the year.
Spring Cleanup will be done by Aldermanic district on the following dates:
District 5 – April 28
District 1 – May 5
District 2 – May 12
District 3 – May 18
District 4 – May 26
