Spring cleanup days set for April 1 and 15
Published 10:00 am Friday, March 31, 2023
Residents in the town of Windsor will have two special opportunities in April to clean out the junk in their attics or garages, trim their trees and/or get rid of items cluttering their yards.
The town is offering special residential trash pickups on Saturday, April 1, and Saturday, April 15.
Town Manager William Saunders shared details on these two spring cleanup days with Windsor Town Council members during the council’s March 14 meeting, starting with a review of how these opportunities came about.
“At your Feb. 7 meeting, you voted to use the Refuse Control and Recycling Grant funds to initiate special residential refuse pickups this spring,” he said.
In prior years, Windsor has received $1,200 from the litter control grant, but Saunders noted in a Feb. 7 staff report that this fiscal year, the town has been awarded $2,463.
“So council voted to spend the funds on having a spring cleanup day, where the refuse company would do an extra pickup of household items left at the curb,” he said.
In a March 14 staff report and during the council’s March 14 meeting, Saunders explained that due to the transfer station being open only until noon on Saturdays, two pickup dates will be required to cover the town.
“The routes have been separated by water billing areas so that informational fliers could be included with the March and April water bills,” he said.
He noted that those who receive a water bill in March will participate in the pickup on April 1, and those who receive a water bill in April will participate in the April 15 pickup.
These pickups are only for residential addresses that are currently serviced by Bay Disposal, he stated. Businesses, or residences that are served by dumpsters, do not qualify.
“These fliers also have all the prohibited items and information about how to bundle up your yard debris and whatnot.”
