AVILLA SPRING CLEAN-UP
******FOR IN TOWN RESIDENTS ONLY*****
SATURDAY, MAY 21, 2022
ITEMS NEED TO BE AT THE CURB BY 5:00 AM ON MAY 21ST
Washler Inc. will be picking up items this year. They will start at 5:00 am and continue until all items are hauled. They will make one trip down your street and will not pick up in the alleys. They will not backtrack for anyone who does not have their items out in time. Scavenging of piles has always been a problem and makes their 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 their responsibility to clean up homeowner’s yards.
Please do not put items at the curb more than one (1) week before clean-up day.
