The City of Lebanon’s annual spring cleanup will take place during the first two weeks of April.
According to a release from Lebanon Mayor Philip Craighead’s office, residents are encouraged to discard unwanted items – generally not exceeding the volume that could be loaded in the back of an average pickup truck – and place them in trash bags. Items such as wood and metal should be separated.
Tires, hazardous waste, chemicals, paint and wet batteries will not be picked up. All compressors must be removed and all doors must be removed from any refrigerator or freezer. Commercial property and contractual or construction waste from residential properties will not be accepted. Mattresses, box springs, carpet and carpet padding also will not be picked up.
“It is right after the winter and a lot of things get neglected due to the wet and cold,” Craighead said. “It is a way to get ready for spring improvements. We are appreciative of the county’s support in letting us use the Wilson County Landfill at no charge.”
For more information, call the Street Department at 444-0825, ext. 121 between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
