Spring Clean-Up Week will be April 21-25

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

The City of Wilson will hold its annual Spring Clean-Up Week from April 21-25, a time when city residents can dispose of bulky items at no charge.

Next week, the city’s environmental services crews will collect:

  • Furniture and bulky items (chair, table, sofa, etc.), which are loadable by two people.
  • Appliances and other “white goods” (stove, water heater, washer, dryer, etc.)
  • Tires
  • Junk
  • Compost and yard waste (pine straw, leaves, clippings & limbs). Please containerize in bags, sheets, or cans (less than 50 lbs.). Please tie and bundle limbs (4 feet or less). Please identify containers (call 399-2485 for a COMPOST sticker).

Please separate items for Spring Clean-Up Week from normal garbage and recyclable containers. Place items behind the curb, three feet from trees, mailboxes and utility poles, and out of storm drains, gutters and sidewalks.

Residents may rent a trailer for “non-construction” clean-up projects. They may also purchase an additional Roll-Out for $50. Call 399-2485 for more information.

Residents may also drop off waste at the Wilson County Landfill, off N.C. 42 East. Call 291-7335 for directions.
