Clean up week is May 19-24; No curbside pick up this year

Changes are coming to the way Clean-Up Week will be conducted this year.

Posted on 5/10/14

Due to limited personnel at the Sanitation Department, it was decided to forgo the usual curbside pick-up during Clean-Up Week, May 19-24, and will instead have the Langdon Transfer Station open to receive those items free of charge.

Sanitation Department Head Tom Beauchamp said, that with a limited staff Clean-Up week had to have changes made to it and hopes that everyone still disposes their items that week and is grateful for the residents of Langdon being understanding about this year’s change.

The Transfer Station will be open during its regular hours of business, Monday and Friday from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Wednesday from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.; and Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Clean-Up Week usually had items put by the curb, but with a limited staff, the change needed to be made to how it would be conducted this year, so it was decided that in order to continue with Clean-Up Week the transfer station would be open as usual but residents and businesses of Langdon would be able to bring their items there free of any disposal charges.

This opportunity is for residents and businesses of Langdon only and is not available to contractors within the city.

Items that will be accepted free of charge are similar to the ones residents put out on their berms during the past Clean-Up Weeks and include, white goods (washers, dryers, water heaters and grills), furniture, carpet, mattress and box springs, along with wood, trees and tree branches.

Because certain items do cost the city a fee to dispose off, the Sanitation Department will be charging to dispose of the following items, appliances that contain Freon, E-waste (computers, televisions, electronic items), non-broken florescent bulbs, tires.

Because of disposal regulations the Sanitation Department will not be accepting hazardous waste such as chemicals or pesticides.
