NORMAN — The city's fall cleanup campaign begins Saturday and continues on Saturdays through Oct. 26.
Residents can participate in the cleanup by stacking items at the curb that are too large for regular trash containers and for the weekly trash service to collect. For instance, the cleanup day provides a chance to get rid of worn-out furniture or old appliances.
City sanitation crews will work overtime on Saturdays through Oct. 26 to pick up items not normally collected on pickup days. Residents should place items curbside by 7:30 a.m. on their designated Saturday.
Residents also 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 fall cleanup Saturdays.
Residents will need to show a current utility bill, driver's license or other proof of residency to dispose items at the transfer station.
Fall 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; Oct. 5 for customers with Tuesday trash service; Oct. 12 for customers with Wednesday trash service; Oct. 19 for customers with Thursday service; and Oct. 26 for customers with Friday service.
For rural customers, containers will be set up for disposal of items on Oct. 12 at the American Legion building, 156th Avenue NE, north of State Highway 9; and Denver Corner, 10808 E Alameda St.
Rural customers also can call 329-1023 for an appointment to have large items collected.
Yard waste is not included in the items that will be collected. Residents also are warned not to use regular trash containers, wagons or wheelbarrows as containers for cleanup items.
