Spring clean up continues

NORMAN — Spring clean up will be available for customers who have Thursday polycart service on Saturday. Items must be out by 7:30 a.m. Yard waste is not collected as spring clean up items. Yard waste that meets size requirements can be taken to the Compost Facility. Larger limbs and trunks can be taken to the Transfer Station.

Other items not collected include remodeling or demolition debris such as broken concrete, bricks, lumber, sheetrock, shingles, junk cars or any 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 identifying that the Freon has been removed, will the items be accepted.

Polycarts, wagons, wheelbarrows, etc., are not to be used as containers for clean-up items.

The Transfer Station at 3901 S. Chautauqua Ave., will be open and free on Saturday for any Norman sanitation customer, so you may haul your own if you wish. Remember to take a current utility bill when you go, or have a driver’s license with a Norman address.
