Having a hard time getting motivated to spring-clean your house? The city of Elmhurst is providing some much-needed inspiration.
This week marks the city’s annual Spring Clean-Up Week, and it’s time to let it all go.
Extra garbage trucks will be cruising around town late into the evening to pick up your stuff, however most of it will be gone before the garbage trucks arrive. Thrifty families look forward to cleanup week to drive around in pickups and vans looking for treasures to recycle.
Just have everything out on the curb on your regular pickup day, either Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, April 13, 14 or 15, and watch it all disappear. It’s a great way to lighten up for spring.
You can find the complete list of what is accepted and not accepted (don’t put out that big box of ammunition you have stored in the garage) right here.
