The City of Cassville is hosting the second annual "May We Help?" cleanup campaign, beginning on May 9. The effort is aimed at assisting Cassville residents in sprucing up their properties after an intense winter and spring.
City workers will help residents for two weeks in picking up yard and household waste at the curb. Senior citizens and physically challenged residents can contact City Hall at 847-4441, ext. 10, for assistance in moving waste to the curb.
"Our residents' quality of life and property values are directly impacted by how clean our city is," said Cassville Mayor Tracy Holle. "For visitors, a first impression can be a lasting impression. Let's ensure their impressions of Cassville are of a clean, proud city."
Residents are asked to separate curbside waste into two piles: one for yard waste, including leaves, grass, shrubs and limbs; and one for household items, including clothing, furniture and other large items. Metal, appliances, televisions and computers will not be accepted.
The schedule for curbside pickup will take place over a two-week period.
On Monday, May 9 and Tuesday, May 10, items will be picked up west of Main Street and north of 11th Street. On Thursday, May 12 and Friday, May 13, items will be picked up east of Main Street and north of 11th Street.
On Monday, May 16, and Tuesday, May 17, items will be picked up west of Main Street and south of 11th Street. On Thursday, May 19 and Friday, May 20, items will be picked up east of Main Street and south of 11th Street.
The city's yard waste disposal site has already begun its summer hours of operation, which are from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday now through Oct. 31 with the exception of Memorial Day, July 4 and Labor Day.
