Avilla In-Town Spring Clean-Up

This year’s Spring Clean-Up day is Saturday, May 18 beginning at 6:00 a.m.   This opportunity is for AVILLA RESIDENTS ONLY within the corporate limits.   


Electronics will be collected near the recycling bins beside the Avilla Water Plant at 212 East Fourth Street.

We will still be recycling all electronics this year. All electronics will have to be brought to one location in which we will have a box truck and men to help load. The hours of the electronics drop off will be from 8:00 am and 12:00 pm. Any electronics setting at the curb will be left behind. Electronics being: old computers, printers, televisions, VCR’s, stereo’s, DVD players, CD players, etc.

Appliances without Freon: washers, dryers, dishwashers, microwave ovens, and hot water heaters. These items will car y no extra charge. Refrigerators and freezers will be billed at $70.00 each-these are to be paid for at the town hall and tagged prior to picking up. Non-tagged Freon items will be left behind. Tires are $10.00 each for 16″ or smaller without rims and $15.00 each with rims. Tires 17″ or larger are $15.00 without rims, $20.00 each with rims and tractor tires are $25.00. These also need to be paid for at the town hall and tagged prior to picking up.

Wood needs to be in 4ft pieces or less and bundled so it can be handled easily. Carpet needs to be in 4ft rolls or less and bundled or tied. Roofing material will be taken in small manageable amounts. Any huge piles of roofing material will be left behind.

Items that will not be taken: Hazardous materials (oil, wet paint, household chemicals), yard waste, concrete or normal household trash.

All items are to be picked up at the curb–no alley pick up. All items need to be at the curb by 6:00 am the morning of the clean-up. We will go down each street one time. There will be no backtracking for anyone not putting out on time or coming back later in the week. Any questionable piles will be left behind.

The Clean-Up will begin at 6:00 a.m. on the day scheduled and will continue until all items are hauled.

Scavenging of piles has always been a problem and makes our job harder than it should be. Any piles that have been scavenged through and made a real mess will be left behind. It is not our responsibility to clean up home owner’s yards. We will not come in later in the week to pick up this material. Any solution to this problem would be greatly appreciated.
