Greenfield’s Spring Cleanup Day is scheduled for Saturday, May 7 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Arrangements have been made with Community Sanitation of Ohio to place a dumpster near the railroad across from the Waddell Company on S. Washington Street, according to Greenfield City Manager Ron Coffey.
“Everyone bringing trash is asked to bring some form of identification, such as a water bill, that shows their residence to be in Greenfield,” Coffey said. “The basic service is free to residents, but there will be an additional charge for tires and certain other materials.” Large furniture and appliances will be accepted, as will tree and shrub trimmings (brush must be bound and tied). Community Sanitation does charge a fee for certain items such as paint and tires.
A few items of note: paint can fee is $1 per can, but there is no charge if paint is poured out onto cardboard or paper and dried; fees for regular tires are $5 each, with rim $10; regular truck tires $10 each, with rim $15; televisions and computer items will be accepted; refrigerators and air conditioning units will not be accepted due to regulations concerning Freon and other refrigerant gasses.
“All residents of the village are encouraged to discard their trash regularly through a weekly pickup service,” Coffey pointed out. “Our cleanup days are designed to help residents deal with those larger items. This is a great opportunity to clean out sheds and garages and help beautify our community,” Coffey said. “We hope to see a lot of cleanup activity around Greenfield that day.”
For senior citizens and residents with disabilities who may need some help, members of the Greenfield public works staff will be on duty to pick up items at the curb where advance arrangements have been made. Information is needed by 4 p.m. Friday, May 6, and arrangements can be made by contacting Holly Ellinger at 937-981-3500. However, please note that staff members are not permitted to enter the homes of residents.
