Clean Up Days
Spring Clean Up Days in Galesburg will be held April 10-14, 2017. Two weeks each year, one week in the spring and one week in the fall, residents are encouraged to clean out attics, garages, basements and backyards by getting rid of any large unwanted items. During these special weeks, most things can be placed at the curb on your regular refuse pick up day by 6 a.m. without extra charge.
There are some restrictions to this event. Liquid paint, auto batteries, propane tanks, demo waste, concrete chunks, large auto parts, motor oil and tires cannot be accepted. Also, 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 will not be accepted. These items cannot be disposed of in the landfill.
Oversize yard waste will not be collected at the curb. Yard waste needs to be placed in appropriate containers and placed in a separate pile from refuse.
Please help the solid waste crew by bagging and bundling items. Cumbersome items, such as play sets or antenna towers, should be broken down or disassembled. Doors should be removed or secured from large appliances for safety.
Clean Up Days is funded entirely by City of Galesburg residents. Waste from businesses and out-of-town sources are prohibited. In addition, scavenging items from the curb is not allowed. Violators can be fined.
For more information about this and other refuse or recycling programs, please call 309/345-3619.
