Winter Park Spring Clean Up!

 

It’s that time of year again! Now is the time for spring cleaning just in time for the summer. The City of Winter Park encourages residents to participate in the city’s annual Spring Cleanup which will be held during the month of May. The annual Spring Cleanup provides an extra “bonus” pickup day so that residents can dispose of old furniture, broken appliances and other bulky items.

To take advantage of this convenient service, residents must place their items curbside after 5 p.m. on the evening prior to their second regularly scheduled pickup day.

Households North of Fairbanks/Aloma avenues – May 3 or 4.
Households South of Fairbanks/Aloma avenues – May 10 or 11.
(Hazardous waste and yard waste is not included in the spring cleanup.)

 

Date: Friday, May 3,4, 2018 from 8am to 5pm
