Spring Clean Up is a one-week opportunity for residents of Mount Pleasant to rid your home of those unusual or large items that are too big to fit into a garbage bag for your regular garbage collection day. The collection work is done by WEMIGA WASTE. Spring Clean Up will be picked up on your normal garbage day. Please do not place items curbside until the week before Spring Clean Up.

THINGS WE WATCH FOR:
Leave the lids off your paint cans. If you have old paint cans and the paint is dry, we can take
them. We cannot take wet paint of any kind.
We can take all kinds of carpet. Carpet must be tightly rolled and tied to be collected.
Please adhere stickers no earlier than the morning of your pickup date to ensure scavengers don’t
take the adhered to item. Pile size limited to equivalent to unit 6′ wide x 8′ long x 4′ tall, excludes
separated metal pile. You are required to use a minimum of eight stickers for your entire pile.
