Shelbyville's Spring Clean-up will be April 1-5. It's on a residents regular trash day.
There will be NO recycling pickup during this week. Residents should save recyclables for the following week for pickup.
The city will pick up large items such as furniture, household trash, appliances (without freon), wood, metal, etc.
The city will NOT pick up anything with live bed bugs.
Anything with freon in it, such as refrigerators or air conditioners must be tagged as having had the freon and the compressor removed before the city can put it into the landfill.
The city also will not pick up tires, or remodeling debris such as roofing shingles and concrete.
The spring clean-up also does not collect televisions or computers, however, these items can be dropped off at the Street Department at no charge throughout the year if you are a city resident.
No more than a regular size truck load amount, no more than approximately an 8X6 section not being taller than four-foot, any more than that is too much. Crews will not stay at one stop for more than 10 minutes.
These are the best guidelines to go by if you are not sure how much is too much. If a stop load size is in question, crews will defer to the supervisor, and any amount that is over that will be left and will be the responsibility of the property owner to remove any and all items left.
Everything must be neatly piled and separated by material type, ie: wood, metal, general trash, furniture-as we have different trucks picking up different items. As always, have your items as by 7:00 am on your pick up day.
