Sherburn to hold citywide cleanup Saturday

SHERBURN — Saturday is citywide cleanup day in Sherburn.

There will be curbside pickup available this year. You may place items on the curb and they will be picked up starting at 7 a.m.

Only residents of Sherburn will be allowed to participate in this cleanup.

No electronics, chemical products, hazardous waste, tires, paint, oil, loose shingles, yard waste, trees, shrubs or grass clippings will be picked up.

Items that will be picked up include furniture, such as couches, chairs, tables and mattresses. Carpet and small amounts of re-modeling material, such as siding; dried out paint cans; and drywall will also be picked up.

Small appliances will be picked up, but you will need a tag from City Hall to be placed by any appliance you have on the curb. Cost for a tag is $20 and they must be purchased by Thursday.

As in past years, there will be trucks behind City Hall at no cost to haul away your items if you do not want to purchase a tag. If you have any questions, call City Hall at (507) 764-4491.

Residents are reminded that they may put their items on the curb anytime this week to allow others to pick up and repurpose any unwanted but reusable items.
