The City of Galesburg will hold clean-up days April 12-16, 2021. During this week, residential refuse customers can place most items, including oversized items and large quantities of refuse, on the curb on their regular refuse pick-up day by 6 a.m. and free pick-up will be provided by Waste Management.
 
All loose items are required to be bagged or bundled. Cumbersome items, such as playsets or antenna towers, should be broken down or disassembled. Doors should be removed from large appliances for safety.
 
There are some restrictions to this event. Yard waste is not included in this event and should be disposed of in accordance with guidelines provided in the Recycling and Solid Waste Brochure.
 
Liquid paint, auto batteries, propane tanks, large amounts of demo waste, boards with exposed nails, large concrete chunks, large auto parts, motor oil, and tires cannot be accepted. Certain electronic devices such as computer equipment, televisions, FAX machines, DVD player/recorders, VCRs, video game consoles, iPods/portable digital music players, digital converter boxes, and cable/satellite receivers are prohibited from disposal in Illinois landfills and will not be accepted. Options for electronics and paint recycling can be found in the Recycling and Solid Waste Brochure on the City's website.
 
Restricted items that are not collected must be removed from the curb following the customer's regular refuse pick-up day. Any leftover waste on the curb after the customer's regular refuse pick-up day will be subject to additional fees for pickup. Notice is not required prior to the remaining items being collected and fees charged for the additional pickup.
 
Clean-up week is funded entirely by City of Galesburg refuse customers and is provided to residents with an active refuse account. Waste from businesses and out-of-town sources is prohibited. Scavenging items from the curb is not allowed and violators can be fined. For questions or more information, contact the City of Galesburg Community Development Department at 309-345-3619.
