NORMAN — The city's spring cleanup campaign begins Saturday and continues on Saturdays through May 4.
Residents can participate in the cleanup by pitching to the curb worn-out furniture, old appliances and other items too large for regular trash containers and for the weekly trash service to collect.
City sanitation crews will work overtime on Saturdays through May 4 to pick up those items not normally allowed on regular trash pickup days. Residents should place items curbside by 7:30 a.m. on their designated Saturday.
In addition, residents can dispose of unwanted items at the Norman Transfer Station, 3901 S Chautauqua Ave., at no charge on the five designated Saturdays. The transfer station will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on spring cleanup Saturdays.
Residents will need to show a current utility bill, driver's license or other proof of residency to take advantage of the no-charge service.
Spring cleanup dates are set according to the city's trash collection schedule. The dates and areas included on each date are Saturday for sanitation customers with Monday trash service; April 13 for customers with Tuesday trash service; April 20 for customers with Wednesday trash service; April 27 for customers with Thursday service; and May 4 for customers with Friday service.
For rural customers, containers will be set up for disposal of items on April 20 at the American Legion building, 156th Ave. NE, north of State Highway 9, and Denver Corner, 10808 E Alameda St.
