The city of Grovetown is offering its residents a chance to tidy up by holding its annual Citywide Spring Cleanup next week.
"If it is at the curbing, (crews) will pick it up," said Vicky Capetillo, a Grovetown city clerk.
The cleanup, scheduled for Monday through Friday, allows residents to set items headed for the dump on the curb for city workers to pick up.
Items should be divided into metals, yard waste and all other garbage. They will be picked up and disposed of for free, with a limit of one pickup-load per household, per category.
Capetillo said any resident putting out more than a truckload of a particular type of item will be charged for the disposal.
"Usually, what we have been doing lately is just charging (residents) what it costs us at the dump," Capetillo said.
Crews will pick up nearly all items on the curb, including rimless tires, she said. Exceptions include items that require special handling, such as chemicals and vehicle batteries.
Crews will pick up large items such as furniture and appliances as long as those items are on the curb.
"With any appliances like refrigerators or freezers we ask that (residents) ... remove the doors or lay them down on the doors so children don't find play areas," Capetillo said. "We don't want anyone to get locked inside any of the appliances."
