Siloam Springs residents are invited to take advantage of Spring Cleanup beginning Monday, April 10 and running through April 14.
Every year, the City of Siloam Springs Sanitation Division provides this service to the community for free. Spring Cleanup is scheduled for a resident's normal trash/recycling day next week.
"We are excited to offer this service to the residents of Siloam Springs. It's a great time of year for spring cleaning and to remove old toys, furniture, and trash from your house," Communications Manager Megan Whitworth said. "We want to thank the City of Siloam Springs Sanitation Division for providing this service and for their hard work in cleaning up Siloam Springs."
Approved bulk household items include:
Artificial Christmas trees, chairs, couches, entertainment centers, old above ground pools, mattresses, box springs, sinks, tubs, lawn furniture, large toys, etc.
