Citywide cleanup: Put out extra trash on regular pickup day during week of May 8

First the garage sales – then for what’s not sold and the rest of the junk, the citywide cleanup.

Webb City’s citywide cleanup will be held in two phases:

PHASE 1 – curbside on regular trash-route days from Monday, May 8 through Friday, May 12.

This one time a year, you are allowed to put out a larger amount of trash than usual. However, Russell Ball, code enforcement officer, emphasizes that the amount you put out should be reasonable in terms of weight and volume.

A second truck will follow the trash truck to pick up bulky items. The second truck won’t come until Tuesday for those on the Monday route. It will come on the same day the rest of the week.

• Acceptable items: carpet (bundled), furniture, mattresses, box springs, toys, tools, bicycles (minus tires) and general waste.

• Unacceptable items: tires, batteries, paint, liquid waste, construction material, automobile parts, appliances, guns/ammunition, concrete/dirt, bricks/blocks, electronics, yard waste, leaves and grass clippings.
