Cleanup Week is next week

Vandalia residents who are customers of Doty Sanitation will have the opportunity to get rid of unwanted items during the city’s annual Cleanup Week next week.
The unwanted items are to be placed alongside regular trash on residents’ normal trash pickup days.
Residents are asked to pile items on the curbside in a manner that they would like to have were they to pick it up themselves.
Any lumber should be cut in reasonable lengths, stacked and, if possible, bundled into reasonable weights.  
Residents wishing to get rid of old appliances and other large items are not required to call city hall.
They need only to place those large items out with their regular trash.
City workers will be following Doty Sanitation crews during Cleanup Week and picking up large items set out by residents.
Some items are not being accepted during Cleanup Week.
Those include:
• Paint in wet stage.
• Car batteries.
• Tires.
• Brush.
• Landscape waste.
• Construction materials.
• Hazardous waste materials.
Also not being accepted are televisions, computers and other electronics.
However, those items may be recycled by dropping them off at the Fayette County SWCD office, 301 S. Third St., on Wednesday afternoons.
