City-wide cleanup next week
Gettysburg residents will get help from the city to clean up their property next week.
The “clean up week” has been set for May 20-25. Items left on the boulevard by Thursday will be picked up by the city crew. They will haul tree branches away at no charge, provided they are properly placed on the boulevards and cut into six foot lengths. Small tree twigs must be boxed and left on the curb.
The fees will be waived at the rubble site during the clean up week. Residents may haul rubble items to the site during that time. The city crew will also pick up rubble items left on the curb by Thursday, which basically includes items other than household waste that needs to go to the garbage truck. This city does ask that residents take out their own leaves and garden waste to the landfill.
Refrigerators and air conditions must have the freon removed and the item tagged before it can be accepted. No asphalt shingles, concrete, demolition debris, tires, or ag related products may be dumped.
It is recommended to use paper bags or boxes only if absolutely necessary, and plastic bags cannot be accepted at the rubble site.
The items will only be collected during the work week. The landfill will be open Monday through Friday from 3 to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., weather permitting, for residents to haul rubble.
If you have any questions regarding the clean up, contact the City Finance Office at 765-2264.
