The City of Macomb and Waste Management request the assistance of the citizens of Macomb in the Spring City-Wide Clean-Up May 16-19, 2022 followed by a second pick up on the Monday route on May 23, 2022. Residents should place their refuse and trash curbside no earlier than 48 hours before their regular garbage pickup day. Clean up begins at 6:00am on your normal pick up day. Unfortunately, some residents are not placing their refuse and trash out until after the crews have passed their homes, which necessitate contractors and city crews to retrace their steps, prolonging the time and resources devoted to the effort. Mayor Michael Inman encouraged city residents, “This is a beneficial service provided to the community. On-time placement of refuse and trash keeps the cost down and reduces the neighborhood unsightliness associated with the program.”
Residents are advised that refuse and trash should be placed in containers or bundles weighing less than 50 pounds. Sturdy bags, including plastic trash bags, will be permitted containers for this event ONLY. “White goods” and bulk items are to be placed as close to the curb as possible. Loose refuse and electronics are NOT permitted.
Other items not included in the pickup are: Yard Waste, Liquid Waste (paint, motor oil, thinner), Hazardous Waste (gasoline, propane, chemical wastes, insecticides/pesticides), Tires, Batteries, Large Auto Parts, Construction and Demolition Debris, or Concrete Preparation.
