Webb City Citywide Cleanup is next week

Bob Foos

Webb City Citywide Cleanup starts next week.

Next week only, Webb City residents can and are encouraged to put an unlimited amount of junk at the curb on their normal trash day.

Unlimited isn’t quite right.

Russell Ball, the city’s code enforcement officer, says the amount should be reasonable in terms of weight and volume.

Public works staff with a truck will follow the trash truck on its normal route each day to pick up what didn’t fit in the regular trash containers.

Permissable items to be set out on your normal trash day are:

  • Carpet (bundled)
  • Furniture
  • Mattresses
  • Box springs
  • Toys
  • Tools
  • Bicycles (minus tires)
  • General waste

Unacceptable items:

  • Tires
  • Batteries
  • Paint
  • Liquid waste
  • Construction material
  • Automobile parts
  • Appliances
  • Guns / ammunition
  • Concrete / dirt
  • Bricks / blocks
  • Electronics
  • Yard waste
  • Leaves
  • Grass clippings

Don’t forget that recyclable items can be dropped off at the recycling station on the road on North Madison Street leading to the wastewater treatment plant.
