Spring Cleanup Week

Posted:

Trash is littering the boulevards in Bismarck.

Cleanup week is underway, giving residents the chance to do their spring cleaning.

The city of Bismarck has extra manpower on duty.

When the city comes by to pickup your weekly garbage, they'll also pickup whatever you have along your curb.

"So we'll pickup the tires and the refrigerators, things like that we normally don't pick up, couches and chairs which aren't on the normal pickup run during the week, just during the cleanup week," Recycling Specialist Galen Bren said.

Spring cleanup week couldn't have come at a better time after a weekend in the 70's and 80's --- because many people are getting spring fever.

"I think people are just ready to get out you know after the long winter that drug out, especially after this last snow storm and now they're able to get out and get things cleaned up at home," Bren said.

The city will not pick up hazardous garbage.

Stuff like paint, pesticides and batteries can be dropped off at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility located at the landfill.
