The city's spring cleanup campaign begins Saturday.

Sanitation crews will work overtime every Saturday through May 5 to pick up items not allowed on regular collection days.

Residents can place items too large for regular trash service curbside — there's no limit on how much can be set out.

Employees will use the city's manual trucks, so residents should not place items in their trash carts.

Items should not be placed at the curb more than one week before the scheduled collection day.

Rural customers who want to have large trash items picked up should call the sanitation department at 329-1023 to schedule an appointment.
