Spring must surely be here-- it’s time for the city’s Spring Large Item Pickup.

Residents are encouraged to dispose of large items that cannot be discarded through their weekly garbage service by putting them at the curb for pickup Monday-Wednesday, April 8-10.  The Large Item Pickup map  appears in this edition

 of the Mirror-Reporter on page 13, listing the dates the City will pick up in areas of the city and the items that will and will not be picked up.

City residents can have old appliances and/or electronic items picked up during City Wide Cleanup for a cost of $15 an item.  Stickers can be purchased for $15 each at Clear Lake City Hall, 15 N. 6th Street.  Stickers must be purchased by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 10.  Items that require a sticker are:  furnaces, air conditioners, refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers, dishwashers, stoves, washers, dryers, microwaves, copy machines, water heaters, fluorescent light fixtures, televisions, computer monitors, and printers.  Pickup of appliances in all areas will be on Thursday, April 11.  Have appliances with stickers attached by the curb by no later than 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 11.

The City will not pick up any items that may be recycled through the Landfill of North Iowa’s electronic waste-recycling program.  VCR’s, DVD players, stereo equipment, clock radios, computer towers, mouses and keyboards, scanners, fax machines, and cordless phones may go to the Landfill for recycling.  Fluorescent light bulbs should also be taken to the landfill for disposal.
