Spring Clean Up is Coming
The City of Jonesville will be holding its 13th Annual Residential Spring Clean Up in time to tidy the town for the 45th Annual Riverfest weekend. The date has changed this year. The pickup is scheduled for Saturday, April 27, 2019. Modern Waste Systems will begin pick up at 7:00 A.M. Thus, items must be placed at the curb prior to 7:00 A.M. on April 27, 2019; however residents can start putting their items out starting Saturday, April 20th. Remember, “One person’s junk is another person’s treasure”, so you may see your items disappear before Saturday. If you are a “treasure hunter”, please be courteous when sorting and leave areas tidy.
This activity also allows residents the opportunity to comply with the Outdoor Storage “Junk” Ordinance without incurring additional disposal costs. We encourage residents to participate and help keep Jonesville an attractive community in which to live, work and play. Properties not in compliance with the junk ordinance may receive a citation.
There is no limit as to the amount of items placed at the curb. The following items that can be placed out for pick up are: manageable bags/boxes less than 50 lbs., furniture, toys, bicycles, home fixtures, building materials, doors, sections of fencing (must be cut down to fit into truck and lifted by one person), wheel rims. Unacceptable items include: Construction materials, yard waste, liquid or hazardous waste, tires, motor oil, and car batteries. Contact the City Hall at 849-2104 for additional details.
