CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Spring cleanup dates have been released for the city of Charleston.
As residents of Charleston turn their attention to spring cleaning, the City of Charleston's Refuse Department is preparing for its special collection runs on Mondays in May and early June.
City crews will collect just about any refuse placed on the curb starting May 6, with a few notable exceptions.
"In addition to the regularly scheduled refuse collection, on the first three Mondays of May and the first Monday of June, we will have special crews assigned to specific parts of the city to collect furniture, appliances and other non-traditional garbage that people throw out as they do their own spring cleaning in their homes," said Charleston Mayor Danny Jones. "Our crews will not pick up batteries, toxic substances or paint cans that have not be properly dried, but they will collect just about everything else people place on the curb at the appropriate time."
Residents whose regular refuse collection is on Tuesdays will be the first on the special cleanup collection schedule on Monday, May 6.
Wednesday customers are scheduled for the special collection on Monday, May 13. Thursday customers are set for Monday, May 20, and, after skipping Memorial Day, the special collection will conclude on Monday, June 3 for residents whose garbage is collected on Fridays.
The special cleanup collection applies only to regular customers of the city's refuse department, and the special pickup does not affect the regular refuse collection, which will continue as usual Tuesdays through Fridays.
