The City of Cassville's annual spring clean-up will be held Monday through May 8. 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; loveseats; recliners; desks; televisions; bundled guttering; beds, including hide-a-beds, mattresses and box springs.

Wood pallets, waste from small remodeling or wood projects and 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 will also be accepted.

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 or acid batteries or waste from large remodeling or construction projects.

The city is offering the service again this year for Cassville residents who want to dispose of large appliances and metal.

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

The other option will be to have Cassville residents set at their curb side large appliances for Republic Services to collect. There is a $15 fee. Residents must pay the fee at the Cassville City Hall by May 3rd 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.
