— Beginning Saturday, residents can pitch large, unwanted trash items to the curb during the city's fall cleanup campaign.

Sanitation workers will work overtime every Saturday through Oct. 27 to pick up items not normally allowed on regular collection days.

Crews will not be using the city's automated trucks, so no items should be put in trash carts. Residents should place big trash items by the curb or in the alley for pickup by 7:30 a.m. on their neighborhood's designated Saturday.

Fall cleanup days are set according to the city trash collection schedule. The dates and areas included on each date are:

• This Saturday for sanitation customers with Monday trash service.

• Oct. 6 for customers with Tuesday trash service.

• Oct. 13 for customers with Wednesday trash service.

• Oct. 20 for customers with Thursday trash service.

• Oct. 27 for customers with Friday trash service.

Rural customers east of 48th Avenue NE and 48th Avenue SE are eligible to participate in the cleanup campaign but should call 329-1023 by Monday to schedule an appointment for pickup.

Residents also can dispose of unwanted items at the Norman Transfer Station, 3901 S Chautauqua Ave., at no charge, on the five designated Saturdays included in the cleanup program.

The transfer station will be open 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 proof of residency to take advantage of the no-charge service at the transfer station.
