The City of Decatur Public Works department is gearing up for the 2018 Neighborhood Cleanup days.

The City offer these days once a year to help residents dispose of bulky items that don’t easily fit into Pay-As-You-Throw bags. Each street in the city is assigned to a Saturday between March and June. Dates for the 2018 event are now available:

All items to be collected should be placed at the curb by 7:30 a.m. This ensures that we do not have to rerun routes for late set-outs. Collections run until 3:30 p.m., or until finished, whichever is sooner.

Acceptable Items
• Yard trimmings 

• Building materials (not from the work of private contractors) 
• Tires 
• Furniture 
• Appliances (not containing Freon) 
• Trash that won’t fit into pay-as-you-throw (PAYT) bags

Materials we will not collect
• Liquids 

• Dirt 
• Bricks 
• Blocks 
• Stone, rocks, or concrete 
• Motor vehicle batteries or parts
• Trees (removed by contractor)

Speaking of spring cleaning, the City street sweeping schedule can be found here:

Find your street and tell your neighbors so street parking will be minimal on those days.
