Annual spring cleaning arrives

Villagers are invited to engage in a little spring cleaning during the Village’s annual clean-up week, which will begin Monday, May 9, and end Friday, May 13. All household items, large and small, may be placed outside by regular trash pick-up day. This service is only available for Village Solid Waste customers.

Villagers are asked to:

-package small items for easier handling, in a box, bag or tied in bundles, or similar.
-bundle corrugated cardboard no larger than two square feet; these items may also be picked up weekly with regular garbage.
– separate metal items out from other materials, so they may be recycled.
– have a qualified technician certify that cooling appliances as CFC-free. (Rumpke will provide this certification for $20, and may be reached at 1-800-233-3960.)

Villagers are asked not to put out:

-yard waste: leaf and brush are picked up on the last Friday of the month through November. Bags and tags for yard waste may be purchased for $1.50 at the Village Utility Office, which can be reached at 767-7202.
-motor oil: oil can be recycled in a receptacle located behind the Bryan Center.
-construction materials: these are accepted at Xenia Demolitions Debris Facility, which is located at 588 Dayton-Xenia Road in Xenia, and may be reached at 937-372-2978.
-hazardous materials: household hazardous waste is recycled twice a year in Greene County. Call 937-562-5925 for the next date.
-batteries: auto, motorcycle, lawn mower and tractor batteries are accepted at various locations. Call 937-562-5925 for information.

For general information, call 767-3402, or e-mail rlillich {at} yso(.)com. Every effort to bundle, sort, separate and certify will be much appreciated.
