Neighborhoods encouraged to take advantage of fall cleanups

0

The City of Springfield and Community Partnership of the Ozarks will again be contracting with Republic Services to offer neighborhood clean-ups for fall of 2017- spring of 2018. Grant Beach and Heart of the Westside’s cleanups are in September; the six other neighborhood cleanups in this round start Oct. 7 and continue through Nov. 18. See the full schedule below.

CPO coordinates with the City of Springfield’s Neighborhoods and Planning Office to coordinate and administer cleanup activities in registered neighborhoods in Springfield. These cleanups give Springfield residents the opportunity to dispose of bulky items such as mattresses, furniture, and appliances as well as yard waste, free of cost.

Bissett and Heart of the Westside are participating in curbside-only pickups this fall as a pilot project. Residents of those neighborhoods are asked to place bagged and large items at the curb for removal by 7 a.m. Scheduling is not required for pickup for these two neighborhoods, but if you have any questions, please call Republic Services at 417-865-1717. Republic Services will pick up bagged small items, furniture, carpet (4-foot tied rolls), small household items, bicycles and grills (no propane tanks). They will not pick up yardwaste, appliances, remodeling/construction debris, tires, motors, large vehicle parts, bulk liquids or hazardous waste.

If you have questions about your neighborhood’s cleanup, or if you need to arrange a curbside pickup and do not live in Bissett or Heart of the Westside, please contact your neighborhood cleanup coordinator.
