3 Things you can do today to get a head start on spring yard cleanup
Start this spring looking good in our neighborhoods! In those “not quite spring” weather days when you’re itching to get outside, but it’s not quite warm enough for planting and the grass hasn’t started growing, here’s a few tasks you can check off your list to make spring cleanup easier!
1) Pick up trash items
It’s easier to get to any trash and garbage that has blown into your yard over the winter months before the grass, bushes, flowers, and other plants start growing and it gets stuck. Be sure to check under shrubs, around the sides of houses, behind garages.
2) Clean up leaves and other dead vegetation
Use paper lawn waste bags to pack up leaves, small sticks, and other vegetation. Put it out by your trash cans on garbage day, and it’ll get picked up for free.
3) Get ready for FREE LANDFILL DAYS in Pontiac—Saturday April 23rd, April 30th, and May 7th & the Oakland County NoHaz collection on Saturday April 30th.
Don’t miss this opportunity to get rid of the big items that you’ve been stuck with! Clean off the front porch, gather up things that have accumulated in your yard, garage, and basement, and drop them off at the GFL site at 575 Collier Rd! For details, click here.
WHAT’S ALLOWED: furniture, mattresses, appliances (must have freon removed), carpet, wood, and demolition items. Tires will be accepted for a fee of $3 each.
