Funded by Ward Committees, the Division of Property Standards organizes and coordinates 12 to 15 neighborhood clean-up events each year.
Always held on Saturday for the convenience of the residents, these events are operated in conjunction with Allied Waste, the City's Waste Hauling Contractor. These clean-up days provide a valuable service and a way to complement the City's outstanding solid waste program.
Trash compactor trucks are placed at strategic locations throughout the neighborhood and, free of charge, residents are afforded the opportunity to dispose of:
Scrap metal, wood, material left over from home remodeling projects
Old toys, bicycles, household appliances, and similar items
All usable metal is recycled.
The following items are prohibited:
All liquids including paints
Should you wish to discuss the possibility of having a clean-up day in your neighborhood, please contact your ward alderman by contacting the Alderman's Office at 630-256-3020.
