The City of Salem Public Works Department has announced that the City Wide Clean Up will begin on Monday, October 16, 2017. The City’s residential trash hauler will pickup ANY REASONABLE AMOUNT of normal household items that are set at the curb on your normal trash day during that week ONLY. Each residential customer will be allowed only one pickup during this week. Acceptable items include white goods (stove, hot water heater, air conditioner) couches, bedding and other furniture.
Items that CANNOT be picked up include:
Paint or Chemical cans
Any Asbestos product
Electronics (TV, VCR, stereo or computer equipment)
Construction or remodel debris of any sort (shingles, toilets, sinks, lumber, carpet etc.)
Car parts, including tires, batteries, auto body parts etc.
Items of questionable or unknown content will be left. Absolutely no items can be taken which were not from a source within the City Limits.
Due to the excessive work load during this clean up residents are asked not to park in front of pickup areas. Items that are not easily accessible will be left. Any item not picked up due to non-compliance with the above rules will become the responsibility of the property owner /tenant.
