MITCHELL — Mitchell’s annual Spring Cleanup Week is returning this week, offering city residents the opportunity to dispose of oversized items not traditionally picked up by trash collectors.

During the week of April 18 through April 22, the City of Mitchell will collect oversized items set aside on the curb. City crews will follow routes of trash collectors, hauling away items left outside according to each neighborhood’s regular garbage collection schedule — though the collection may occur at a different time of day.

There are some items the city won’t collect however, including: trees, tree branches, tires, batteries, yard waste and large quantities of construction or demolition material.

Per city resolution, collection of oversized items will include a $10 fee. City workers will not collect items that are not placed to the curb.

During Spring Cleanup Week, the city landfill will open for extended operating hours and allow one free pickup-sized load free of charge.

With their normal operating hours of 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, the landfill will remain open until 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday. It will open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on April 16 and 23.

While batteries will be accepted at the landfill office for no charge, tires, special wastes and waste from commercial vehicles are excluded.

Loads transported to the dump must be secured. Unsecured loads may be subject to a $10 fee.

Any questions regarding Spring Cleanup Week can be directed to the city’s Streets and Sanitation Department at 605-995-8465.
