PRESCOTT – In an effort to help City of Prescott residents properly dispose of large trash items, the city’s Solid Waste Division will be conducting its annual spring cleanup of bulk items, beginning this week.
The pick-up schedule includes:
• Monday routes will be picked up starting 3/28*
• Tuesday routes will be picked up starting 4/4*
• Wednesday routes will be picked up starting 4/11*
• Thursday routes will be picked up starting 4/18*
• Friday routes will be picked up starting 4/25*
*The city is reminding residents that all items must be curbside by 6 a.m. Monday of the designated clean-up week, NOT on the day of your normal pick-up. City crews will move through the neighborhoods associated with each route one time only, with bulk pickup completed by Friday of each week.
