If you’re in a mood to do some spring cleaning, help is on the way.

Hartselle‘s Public Works Department is offering free curbside pickup and disposal to residents with unwanted and unserviceable kitchen appliances, household furnishings, garden and lawn equipment and other junk during the annual Morgan County Spring Clean-up Monday through Saturday, April 22-27.

The city’s trash trucks will work routes throughout the city from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday.

“We ask residents to place items for pickup at the curb, away from utility poles and other obstructions, at anytime during the week,” said Byron Turney, Public Works superintendent. “The collection of household garbage, yard waste and recyclables will not be affected.”

The city’s inert landfill will also accept junk from residents free of charge during the same period.

Unacceptable items include automobile tires and batteries, treated limber waste, roof shingles and chemicals.

The Morgan County Commission is serving as project sponsor in partnership with the county’s Adopt-A-Mile anti-litter program.

District commissioners are participating in the clean-up. District shops 2, 3 and 4 will be accepting junk from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 7 to 11 a.m. on Saturday. The district 1 shop will take junk from 7 to 11 a.m. on Saturday only. District shop personnel will be available to assist in the unloading of heavy items.

The Decatur-Morgan County Landfill at Trinity will also be accepting junk for disposal free of charge during the clean-up period.

Adopt-A-Mile volunteers will be picking up litter on road rights-of-way and other public grounds during the clean-up and welcome volunteers to work in unassigned areas.
