Ellwood City offers spring cleanup event

NEW CASTLE — Ellwood City is planning a spring cleanup for Saturday.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the drop-off site is 1200 Factory Ave.

Residents who wish to dispose of items are to provide the utility billing office with a copy of their electric bill or driver’s license for identification. (An authorized government ID is acceptable for non-drivers.)

The person will then be given a numbered tag for $5 which will entitle the recipient to drop off up to one pickup-sized truck load at the site.

The tag will be collected at the site, which is inside the gates at the electric department.

Residents who would like to have curbside pickup may obtain a tag at the billing office for $25. Those pickups will be done by Valley Waste.

Items that will be accepted are: general trash, small furniture broken down, small household appliances, carpet that has been bundled and tied and is less than three feet wide and 40 pounds, mattresses and box springs limited to one per vehicle and lumber that has been bundled and is less than 4 feet and 40 pounds.

Items that will not be accepted are: couches, televisions, roll-away beds, toilets, hot water tanks, sinks, tires, rims, vehicle parts, building materials, dirt, bricks, blocks, stone, concrete, refrigerators, air conditioners, any other appliance that contains Freon, trash cans or other containers exceeding 40 pounds, and infectious or hazardous materials including paint, oil, chemicals, cleaning agents, anti-freeze, batteries, electronics and light bulbs.
