The Town of Walkerton will hold the annual spring clean up the week of April 27th. Republic Service personnel will collect only large items from the street curbs. These crews will make one trip down each street in town. Residents should have all items to be collected in front of their homes by Sunday, April 26th, prior to the collection date.
Any item that will fit in a trash bag or trash can (35gal) will not be picked up; they can be placed out on your normal trash pick up day. There will be no alley pickup. Please do not place leaves, brush, or limbs with spring clean up items.
As of January 1st, 2011 new state law will not allow us to pick up any electrical items. Any items that plug into an outlet will not be picked up during spring clean up. Tires, paint, brush, hazardous materials, and building materials will not be picked up. Household hazardous waste items can be disposed of at the Household Hazardous Waste Center, located at 822 Kerr Street in South Bend. The center is open from 8:30 to 4:00, Monday through Friday, and Saturday from 8:00 to noon. (574) 235-9971.
