Let’s clean up, Kimberley

Spring cleaning is underway in Kimberley; city to collect yard waste

With the recent early warm weather, the snow is melting. While it’s a welcome sight, it also reveals the mess left over by winter — dust, un-raked yards and more.

With spring comes spring cleanup and the City of Kimberley already has their street sweeper out. It will be running around Kimberley streets for most of April and May. Residents can assist by sweeping sand and gravel from sidewalks into street gutters.

The City will also be doing a pickup of yard waste in May. Each collection route will be picked up once at the beginning of the week. Route 1 (Tuesday) will be picked up the week of May 13; Route 2 (Wednesday) the week of May 6; Route 3 (Thursday) week of May 27; and Route 4 (Friday) week of May 21. Please put your yard waste out the beginning of the week.

This pick up is for grass, leaves, plants and hedge clippings, not large trees and branches or any type of construction waste. All should be put in plastic garbage bags.

Residents are also reminded that there is no outdoor burning permitted.

April 21 to 27, 2013 is Pitch In Week. Individuals and groups can participate in community cleanup. Contact Cynthia at the City of Kimberley, at 250-427-9660 to register.
