Kick large-item trash to the curb for Monday pickup
The Magnolia Heights Neighborhood Association reminds residents that the neighborhood's large-item pickup day is Monday, so this weekend is a good time to do some cleaning up and tossing out. The city's sanitation department will pick up items starting at 7 a.m. and make one sweep of the neighborhood. Items should be placed at the curb Sunday evening. General household items such as furniture and appliances will be picked up. Items that will not be accepted include building materials such as doors, windows, lumber, roofing, large logs or tree stumps. Hazardous materials such as car parts, lead acid batteries, pesticides, oil-based paint and household chemicals are also not appropriate. Contact Chris Stowers, 543-9896 for more information.
