It's almost that time of year again; the time to get rid of any unwanted and broken junk in our homes. 
 
The 2017 Spring Clean Up isn't for another month, but we want to get locals prepared. 
 
"We are doing amnesty from April 24 until May the 12. That's when people can bring in non-demolition related materials, household materials, tires (or) compost for free," stated Tammy Nygaard, Landfill Operations Manager. 
 
So, what days are the clean up on?
 
"Our actual dates are going to be from May the 1st until the 11. The map hasn't changed, we've kept the same locations on the same days throughout the nine days," Nygaard outlined. 
 
Nygaard added that Grace House will be available to help bag leaves for a small fee. 
 
"What we want to do though is really stress this year on bagging leaves and cutting those tree limbs down to four feet lengths and securing them somehow. Just make it easier for the guys to come out and get things picked up."
 
Nygaard and her crew are asking locals to please separate your items prior to. 
 
"Have your tires, paints and electronics separate in separate piles. The crews will come out and pick up the single items, then the big trucks will come get the things left behind," she noted. "Please pay the $15 fee two days in advance for any freon appliances. The little water coolers we're not going to ask for the fee, we're just going to pick them up."
