Reminder: City of St. Charles Spring Clean Up is in May

May 04, 2016 08:57AM ● By Neighbors Magazines

The popular Spring Clean Up program is back again this year. Offered every two years, Spring Clean Up allows residents to place unwanted items at the curb for pick up. Collection dates are May 14 for East Side and May 21 for West Side. This is a service for residents within St. Charles city limits only.

Advanced Disposal will pick up items which must be placed on the curb (not in the street) before 7am to ensure pickup. Once collection crews have passed through an area they will not come back. Also, please do not place items out more than 48 hours before the collection.

If you would like to keep containers used to hold items, mark them “Do not throw can away.” They cannot be retrieved once collected.

Prohibited from Spring Clean Up (These items won’t be collected):

  • Electronics
  • Large home appliances
  • Loose batteries
  • Household hazardous waste (paints, solvents, auto fluids, pesticides, etc.)
  • Devices containing mercury (thermostats, thermometers, etc.)
  • Fluorescent bulbs
  • Liquids and gases
  • Contractor construction debris (doors, windows, large amounts of lumber, masonry products, drywall, siding, roofing)
  • Tires
  • Yard waste (grass, leaves, brush, garden waste, rocks) • Household refuse normally collected each week
