NOLANVILLE — It’s time for residents to spruce up their yards and dispose of unwanted items in their homes.
The city is launching its annual spring clean up next week to allow residents the chance to throw out their rubbish.
“We do it every year to clean up big bulky items throughout the community,” said Mayor Christina Rosenthal.
“This is the time of year people are trimming trees and bushes, rebuilding fences and other household stuff, and this way they don’t have to fill up their trash or worry about what to do with it.”
Residents are required to bring photo identification and a utility bill, and must be an active Texas disposal waste customer, she said.
“We hold it for the citizens to clean up bulk items lying around the house to help with beautification,” said City Manager Stephen Pearl.
“We don’t have a dumpsite in the city, and this is the only time the trash company brings out roll-off Dumpsters so that we can set them out.”
The city oversees the bins to ensure residents use them properly, and the trash company picks them up at the end of the week, Pearl said.
While most trash items are allowed, Rosenthal said fluorescent light bulbs, oils, oil filters, weapons and ammunition, explosives, pressurized gases, Freon, radioactive material, batteries, medical waste, tires, paints, solvents, pesticides and herbicides won’t be accepted.
Contractors, demolition work and commercial property materials also are prohibited.
Items can be dropped off from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 1-6 at the old Nolanville landfill at Farm-to-Market 2410 and Cathy Lane.
