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

Beginning June 1, 2011 all special collections will require pre-payment before pickup. The new fee schedule is as follows:

Branches, Brush, Furniture, General Junk, and Construction Debris -- $50 minimum + $3.25 for every minute beyond 15 minutes

Appliances/White Goods -- $50 each

Clean Dirt -- $50 small load- $175 large load

Mixed Loads -- $85 small load - $175 large load

Concrete/Bricks/Stone -- $75 small load - $140 large load

Abatements - $125 minimum charge + $3.25 for every minute beyond 15 minutes

Special Pickup Violation -- $60 plus special pickup fees

 

Holiday Garbage/Recycling Schedule

For the week of Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day – no collection on Monday. All collection will be one day late. Drop off center closed on holidays.

YARD WASTE AND GRASS CLIPPINGS

Disposal of grass clippings or other yard waste in the garbage is illegal. We strongly encourage you to leave the clippings on the lawn, use a mulching lawn mower, or to place clippings around your garden plants to help retain moisture.

E – WASTE

Cudahy Drop-Off Center is an official e-waste disposal site. Residents may drop off their discarded televisions, computers, monitors, printers, and telephone during regular hours of operation.
