MT. PLEASANT — The City of Mt. Pleasant invites residents to rid their homes of the unusual or large items that are too big to fit into the garbage bag on regular collection days.
The city will host Spring Clean Up for the week of April 24-29.

The city asks that residents do not place items curbside until the week before Spring Clean Up.

Liquids, such as antifreeze, household chemicals, and wet paint

The city asks residents to keep the following in mind:
Leave the lids off your paint cans. They will collect old paint cans with dried paint.
They will accept carpet, but please tightly roll and tie the material for collection.
Reminders about garbage stickers:
Please adhere stickers no earlier than the morning of your pickup date to avoid losing stickers to scavengers.
