It is Spring and it is CLEAN UP time! Yep, now is the time your city is gonna help ya’ get things all spruced up…well, most of it anyway. Speaking of which, they might take that Spruce but, uh, there is a limit to what they will take.
While most of us have junk, umm, treasures, it takes a special person to have some of the items listed as prohibited for pickup during one city’s upcoming “Spring Clean.”
After reviewing the list of prohibited items, one might just take longer look at their neighbor… While the waste company will pick up heavy trash they will NOT pick up (just to list a few) … GUN POWDER / PCB’s / EXPLOSIVES / AMMUNITION / RADIOACTIVE WASTE / DIOXINS / MEDICAL WASTE / PESTICIDES / GERMICIDES / FERTILIZERS or ASBESTOS. Holy Cow!!! And we thought old motor oil and tires were nasty!
So get out there and Spring Clean, but remember…put’n some things in the trash is against the rules AND the law. Who’da ever thought they’d have to list radioactive waste as a no-no in the neighborhood… yep, the times, they are a change’n!
