NORMAN — The city of Norman Spring CleanUp on Saturdays are as follows:

· April 5 — Monday polycart service

· April 12 — Tuesday polycart service

· April 19 — Wednesday polycart service

· April 26 — Thursday polycart service

Items must be out by 7:30 a.m. on the designated Saturday. The schedule also applies to rural customers. Rural customers need to call Sanitation at 329-1023 to schedule an appointment prior to April 4.

Items should not be placed at the curb earlier than one week before the scheduled pickup date; this could result in a code violation, and a fine will be issued.

Yard waste is not collected as spring cleanup items. Yard waste that meets size requirements can be taken to the Compost Facility, 398 Bratcher Miner Road. Larger limbs and trunks can be taken to the Transfer Station, at 3901 S. Chautauqua Ave.

Other items not collected may include: remodeling or demolition debris\, such as broken concrete, bricks, lumber, sheetrock, shingles or junk cars; and hazardous waste\, such as tires, batteries, paints, refrigerators or any items with Freon. Any items containing Freon must have the Freon properly captured by a certified technician. Only with the proper tag will the items be accepted.

Polycarts, wagons, wheelbarrows, etc., are not to be used as containers for cleanup items.

The Transfer Station will be open and free on these Saturdays for any Norman sanitation customer who wishes to haul their own. Take a current utility bill or have a driver’s license with a Norman address.

For Norman residents in rural areas with Norman trash service, containers will be set up to dispose of items April 12 at the American Legion (north of State Highway 9 on 156th Avenue Northeast) and Denver Corner (10808 E. Alameda St.). Proof of residency is required.
