Items to be picked up at curb on normal trash day

The city of Cassville’s annual Citywide Clean-Up will be held the week of Nov. 8, with Republic Services accepting additional household waste and large items on regular collection days.

This program is being offered with the intent of providing the opportunity to clean out their garage, basement or closets, and get rid of old worn out and broken items.

Residents must have their acceptable items at the curb (where the trash cart normally sets) no later than 7 a.m. the morning of the normal service day for pick-up.

Any non-acceptable items will be left at the curb for disposal by the resident. Crews cannot access personal property to assist in moving items to the curb.

Clean-up will not take place at businesses, apartment buildings or at vacant homes. No construction or large remodel projects will be accepted.

The following items will be accepted at the curb: furniture (indoor/outdoor, limit two), beds frames/mattresses, hand and small power tools (must be removed of oil and fuel), weed eaters or small push mowers (must be drained of all fuel and oil), toys/ bicycles, old clothes or small items (please bags items do not leave loose), microwaves and televisions/monitors, toilet or sink bowl.
