The City of Cassville's annual spring clean-up will be held May 5-9.

Republic Services will accept additional household waste and large items on regular collection days.

The following items will be accepted at the curb: barbecue grills; patio furniture; outdoor furniture; sofas; dressers; love seats; recliners; desks; televisions; bundled guttering; beds, including hide-a-beds, mattresses and box springs; wood pallets; waste from small remodeling or wood projects (materials must be cut into four-foot sections and stacked); sinks; toilets; cabinets; vanities; carpet that is cut into four-foot lengths and bundled; fencing that is cut into four-foot lengths; and bicycles.

Republic Services will not accept tires, yard waste, large quantities of ash, dead animals, raw sewage, waste oil, hazardous materials, wet paint containers, chemicals, flammable substances, lead, acid batteries nor waste from large remodeling or construction projects.

Cassville residents may also dispose of large appliances and metal.

One option, which is free of charge, will be to take only metal or large appliances to a dumpster located at 503 Mill Street, across the street from the Barry County Sheriff's Office.

The other option will be to set items at the curb side for Republic Services to collect. There is a $15 fee for curb-side pickup. Residents must pay the fee at the Cassville City Hall by May 3 in order to schedule a pick-up for a large appliance.

The following large appliances will be accepted after the $15 fee has been paid: dishwashers; washing machines; dryers; hot water heaters; and stoves. Republic Services will also accept refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners that display a tag from a licensed technician proving that all freon has been removed from the item.

Yard waste will be accepted as normal at the yard waste facility behind the Cassville Aquatic Park.
